This International Cleaners Day we thank the tens of thousands of cleaners across New South Wales who have worked tirelessly to keep us safe during the pandemic. This week I visited Royal Prince Alfred Hospital [RPA] to meet with some of the over 300 cleaners there, including Dolly, who has worked as a cleaner at RPA for 46 years. She is a proud member of the Health Services Union and told me just how hard she and her colleagues have been working. Cleaners are working 24/7, they have had to retrain during COVID, they are practicing social distancing under extraordinary circumstances and they know that every day they go to work they could be putting their lives and the lives of their families at risk. International Cleaners Day started in 1990 when Los Angeles police attacked cleaners striking for the right to organise. The fight for fair pay and conditions continues 30 years on. The United Workers Union and cleaners across New South Wales are fighting to give cleaners more time to clean, better equipment and training, better wages and job security, and respect and a voice at work. I stand with cleaners across New South Wales and thank them for all they do to keep us safe, not just during COVID-19, but every day.
