CSSA makes case for cleaning industry jobs growth8th of June 2012
With unemployment figures in the UK now hitting 2.63 million - 8.2 per cent of the population - the Cleaning & Support Services Association has launched a report to make the case for employment in the cleaning industry as a growth generator.
The report is titled 'Employment Growth - The Case for Cleaning' and details the contribution that the cleaning industry makes to the economic growth of the UK.
It identifies the cleaning industry as a growth multiplier for the UK, and makes suggestions for policy initiatives the Government could embrace to support the industry and therefore the wider economy.
Among its recommendations it calls on government to make targeted investment in cleaning services in areas such as the NHS, schools, care homes and transport networks.
It also calls for biometric residence permits to be introduced across all non EU workers – all insecure paper documents conferring the right to work in the UK to be withdrawn. And CSSA would like a reform of the TUPE regulations in order to smooth the transition of contracts between service suppliers, along with proportionate regulation of health and safety.
