To: Premier of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian

Cleaners deserve jobs we can count on!

We’ve WON our fight for job security - Share the news:

We’ve locked in:
- A job guarantee for every single NSW cleaner under the contract, meaning cleaners won’t be forced to reapply for your jobs
- An hours guarantee, meaning employers can’t slash current hours
- Protections around sub-contracting, meaning we won’t end up with a heap of dodgy employers and wage theft
- And more!

The NSW Liberal government has ripped away school cleaners’ job security in their new cleaning contract.

We’re asking the Premier of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian, for cleaning jobs we can count on.

We’re not asking for much – just a jobs and hours guarantee in the school cleaning contract so we don’t lose our jobs and can still pay the bills.

Why is this important?

I'm Judith, and I've been a cleaner for a long time. I've never seen anything like this.

In the government's new contract, there’s no jobs guarantee – meaning 7,000 cleaners will all be forced to reapply for our jobs, without entitlements like sick leave that we’ve built up over years of service.

And there’s no hours guarantee – which we can’t afford, and also means we won’t be able to keep state schools and public buildings clean.

We’ve only got until the end of the year to change this, so please add your name to tell the Premier that cleaners need job security - the more of us who speak out together, the louder our voices are!
