The Independent: "Knowingly underpaid? John Lewis hit by cleaners' protest"

Link to web site

"Cleaners at the company's flagship store on London's Oxford Street are protesting against low pay, redundancies and cuts to hours, claiming they are being treated as 'second-class citizens'.

"Under its co-operative 'partnership' agreement, John Lewis's 70,000 employees all have a say in the running of the business and share profits. However, third-party employees are excluded from the model, and the company says it holds no sway in the cleaners' dispute as ICM is subcontracted through a facilities firm, MML, which looks after its premises.

"... Organiser Chris Ford said:
"John Lewis are engaged in rank hypocrisy. They can't say they know nothing about it, when they accepted the low bid for the tender."
