Cleaners' rights

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
