Against homophobic abuse and management complicity: London, Friday 24th February

Over two months ago, a cleaner at the London School of Economics, employed via the contractor Noonan, submitted a formal grievance saying he’d been subjected to homophobic bullying at work. While Noonan is known for its record of taking very harsh disciplinary actions against employees for minor offences, like trying to sack three cleaners for finishing their shift a little early, neither Noonan or the LSE have taken any action in this case. The cleaner in question then contacted the grassroots union UVW, and is currently in the process of taking Noonan and the LSE to a tribunal. In the meantime, the UVW union have called a protest for Friday 24th in support of the worker affected and demanding justice, responsibility and accountability.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
