TRAIN CLEANERS on many of Britain's major railway lines are balloting on strikes over pay.
The workers, members of the RMT union employed by the Carlisle Group, are already paid miserably-with some on just £4.39 an hour.
Bosses want to make things even worse by offering a 2 percent rise. With inflation that is effectively a pay cut.
RMT assistant general secretary Pat Sikorski says, 'Carlisle Group's pay rates are an absolute disgrace.
'Carlisle Group can afford to pay decent rates. They have contracts worth £110 million and they can afford to pay their directors six figure salaries.' The strike ballot closes on 15 October.
