Underground London: London's Hidden Army

London depends on a 'hidden army'. Cleaners, porters and security staff take over the city as others sleep. These hidden workers are often trapped in low-paid, insecure jobs where being badly treated is a routine part of working life. They are less likely than any other group of workers to have trade union representation. However, amongst them are strong voices speaking out against exploitation. Come to this event to discuss the hidden army, hear the untold stories, the reality and how to improve working lives.

Speakers include Clara Osagiede (RMT Cleaning Grade Secretary), Greg Thomson (Unison), Hsiao-Hung Pai (author and journalist) and Jack Dromey MP. The event will be chaired by Laurie Penny (New Statesman).
