Rebecca Long Bailey responds to a strike by catering and cleaning staff at BEIS

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, responding to a strike by catering and cleaning staff at BEIS, said “It is beyond disappointing that the department responsible for workers’ rights has failed to treat and pay its workers properly.

“It’s time that the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy listened to its own workers by ensuring they are paid a real living wage and ultimately ending outsourcing.

“These workers deserve real security from the department they have dedicated their working lives to.”
