Telco urges ethical temp job contracts

Civic activism charity Telco is demanding that London's financial institutions abide by an "ethical benchmark" in their treatment of cleaners and contract workers.

The East London-based organisation wants socially responsible tendering contracts, which include a London living wage of £6.70 an hour, and paid bank holidays - in addition to annual leave, sick pay and carer's leave.

The guide Socially Responsible Contracting was launched yesterday by Tony Blair's former deputy political secretary Jon Cruddas MP at the House of Commons.
