Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news

Read by industry professionals in 163 countries worldwide!
 

I normally have a somewhat leisurely return to producing Cleanzine following our annual break - particularly as so many European and North American readers still haven't finished their own holidays. This time has been different though, thanks to the Equalities & Human Rights Commission's report into the treatment of cleaners in the UK. I now know what 'having the phone ringing off the hook' means! It was clear from all the calls that I had to stop holidaying and read the report, published just after last issue of Cleanzine was broadcast, to see what had inspired so many people to get in touch.

What I found disturbed me. It's not the conditions that some cleaners have to endure, or even the fact that only a very small proportion of the industry was involved in compiling the report on what is one of the largest industries in the UK - both worrying in themselves - but more the words in it:

"Some cleaners were denied access to staff canteens, and some had to eat their meals in cupboards full of mops, buckets and cleaning chemicals."

Doesn't that ring any bells? Although this report is supposed to be based on findings of a study launched in September 2013, I'd lay money on the fact that we published those very words in Cleanzine around six years ago. After all, the image of a cleaner suffering the indignity of eating lunch in a cleaning cupboard is a hard one to shake off, isn't it?

I wonder how much more of the lengthy report is based on old information and is perhaps, no longer valid? I'm on a mission to uncover my article which I believe contained those words, so I can compare the findings with those of this new report. I'll get back to you on that in a couple of weeks but in the meantime am including two of the emails received on the subject, below.

The report summary and links to the larger work are included. Please feel free to let me know what you think!

I've just registered to visit what promises to be an excellent cleaning show in Glasgow next week. If you haven't registered yet, you can do so via:

This Week's News

EHRC finds firms are failing to protect key rights of cleaning workers

An examination by the Equality and Human Rights Commission published just after the last issue of Cleanzine was broadcast, has revealed that some employers in the commercial cleaning industry are failing to meet their responsibilities to their staff in relation to pay, holiday or sick leave and dealing with their concerns. Many cleaners feel that their employer, client firms and the public do not treat them with the dignity and respect everyone should expect.

The UK's non-domestic cleaning workforce is largely made up of women, migrant and older workers. While the Commission found many examples of good practice in employment and working conditions, many cleaners spoke of being 'invisible' - the 'lowest of the low', being spoken to rudely and treated badly compared to other employees.

We have Mail: The British Cleaning Council responds to the EHRC report into the cleaning sector; saying: "a good initiative, but the methodology could have been better"

* Lee-Baker.jpgThe BCC is the voice of the cleaning industry and welcomes any initiative that seeks to raise standards in the cleaning sector. In this respect we do welcome the EHRC's work, as highlighting malpractice gives all stakeholders the opportunity to discuss these issues in an open forum.

Where the Council does have concerns is with the methodology of the investigation. The findings were based on a tiny amount of evidence, with only around 1% of those employed in the industry asked to give evidence. The EHRC itself admits that the findings are 'not statistically representative of conditions in the cleaning sector' and so its conclusions must read in that context.

Business growth funding available through voucher scheme

* Barbara.jpgIt is a well-documented fact that small and medium-size businesses are the life-blood of UK's economy. According to the Confederation of British Industry, they account for 99.9% of private sector companies and provide 60% of private sector jobs, so it's no wonder the UK Government is working to create the right conditions for businesses to fulfil their growth potential.

The Growth Vouchers Programme is one scheme, funded by Government, which aims to unlock growth potential among small businesses that are holding back on investing in growth and encourage them to seek external advice. One of the key findings in Lord Young's 'Growing your Business' report of 2013 was that small businesses that use external help are more likely to grow.
