Workers at Goodlord lettings reference agency off Brick Lane, East London, are in their seventh week of an all-out indefinite strike to cut their wages by SIX THOUSAND POUNDS to £18,000 – well below the London Living Wage.
The employer’s rationale is that, because they are now all working from home since the pandemic, they don’t need to live in London any more – so they can slash their wages, despite business booming over the past year.
The workers – members of UNITE – are determined to stay out and win, not only for themselves but to stop other employers cynically using the pandemic to brutally attack terms and conditions.
Goodlord like to think of themselves as the “nice face” of the lettings industry and are very concerned about their image – so you can help by telling everyone how nasty and callous they really are. Ways to share on social media are at the end of the video, and please donate to their strike fund:
