Support for sacked cleaner Alberto Durango

Issue No. 2189

Activists protested against the sacking of Unite union activist Alberto Durango outside the UBS building in central London on Friday of last week.

They are outraged that the Lancaster cleaning company sacked Alberto last week, seeing it as the latest in a series of attacks on cleaners’ right to protest in London.

Lancaster, which is owned by Rentokil Initial, also sacked Alberto last year after years of working for the company.

He later found work with Mitie at the UBS bank, but the contract was then transferred to Lancaster.
