Cleaners denied 45p pay rise whilst MP's claim millions.

The true face of New Labour equality...Cleaners at the House of Commons are to ballot for strike action after being denied a 45p pay rise – while their masters squabble over expenses worth tens of thousands of pounds a year.

The 120 staff – who clean lavatories, sweep corridors and polish floors in the Palace of Westminster – were promised the rise seven months ago.

Last night one of the cleaners, who refused to be identified, said: ‘We clean up after MPs while they argue over their expenses but somehow we can’t have a pay rise of 45p an hour.

‘We have had meeting after meeting and we’ve been reasonable, but it’s not got us anywhere.

'And you don’t want to see what I have to clean up in the toilets. Now we’re thinking of striking to get some action.’

Paul Davies, a spokesman for the Unite union which represents the cleaners, confirmed: ‘We are committed to balloting our members for strike action. If I was a cleaner, I would be angry about MPs’ expenses, too.

'But our main fight is with the company that employs the cleaners, KGB Cleaning and Support Services.’

I had to Google this I really thought it was someones idea of a joke... turns out I was wrong.
How far up does KGB Cleaners Ltd influence go? I suppose shovelling the shit that comes out of our esteemed masters arsoles should be given to the KGB.LOL
Who gave these people the contract?
Surely someone spotted the connection!!!
