Janitors Say "Goldman Sucks"posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 11/30/2006 01:43:00 AM
Staff at investment bank Goldman Sachs, where some of London's highest paid bankers work, were trapped on Tuesday lunchtime inside their Fleet Street office by cleaners and union members protesting over low pay.
About 20 cleaners and Transport and General Workers Union (T&G) union members stormed the office building around lunchtime carrying placards reading "Goldman Sucks".
The protest is part of a long-running campaign for a pay rise for workers who clean offices across the City, the T&G said, adding that some earn as little as 5.35 pounds ($10.38) an hour and have to take on two or more jobs in order to survive.
The union wants a flat rate of 7.05 pounds.
