Nightcleaners is a documentary film about the campaign to unionise the women who cleaned office blocks at night and who were being victimised and underpaid by their employers. It was made by members of the Berwick Street Film Collective, who originally intended to make a campaign film but instead were forced to turn to new forms of film-making in order to represent the forces at work between the cleaners, the Cleaner’s Action Group and the unions – and the complex nature of the campaign itself.
Much of present day struggles in the cleaning sector are led by workers from Latin America and we please to be able to commission a translation of the film into Spanish so that those in the front-line of today’s struggles can draw from this political history
After the film there will a discussion led by CAIWU and an opportunity to hear about and get involved in their current campaigns against Google, WeWork and many more. All welcome
Subtitles by Jake Lagnado.
