Cleaners' rights

The cleaning sector has been ignored for too long and this work will go a long way to highlight issues in the sector and to raise the profile of cleaners in the workplace

Cleaning Taskforce commitment

We are committed to improving working conditions for cleaning operatives across the cleaning industry by:

  • Promoting employers’ compliance with employment law and improving workers’ understanding of employment rights
  • Improving the impact of public and private sector procurement of cleaning services on employment conditions in the sector and;
  • Encouraging the respectful treatment of cleaning operatives.

#seethetruevalue is an industry-backed initiative that aims to address cleaners’ rights. Commission Deputy Chair Caroline Waters has also written a blog explaining why it is so important for cleaners to know their rights, read her blog here
