Cleaners working at Kensington and Chelsea town hall are celebrating a promise that they will get a pay rise and will be paid the London Living Wage. The pay increase was agreed after union reps for the United Voices of the World union met council leader Elizabeth Campbell and chief executive Barry Quirk.
