‘Extend corporate social responsibility to cleaning contracts’

Major corporations such as ING, ABN Amro and Reed Elsevier pride themselves on their corporate social responsibility (CSR), but at the same time, they economise on their cleaning contracts. As a result, cleaners are faced with increased work pressure and the quality of cleaning is affected. Cleaners are asking them to take responsibility for conditions in the cleaning sector.
On Saturday, trade union FNV Bondgenoten organised the first Cleaners’ Parliament in Amsterdam. The cleaners elected a new chairman. Politicians and community organisations pledged their support to the cleaners’ campaign for decent wages and training and against work pressure and intimidation.

If you are going to do the cleaning yourself, it needs some planning before you start. Time is the most important factor. How much time is required for the job? How many persons will be involved? What we need to clean? With what detergents. These questions need to be answered. If we have very limited time, very little man-power, then the only way is to divide the job into smaller tasks and do one at a time. If we have limited time, but have plenty of man-power, may be we can have the job done pretty fast. It would be ideal if we have lot of time and plenty of man-power.
