A group of migrant cleaners - members of the United Voices of the World union - have won a historic victory at the Daily Mail.
After the threat of an all-out cleaners' strike at the Mail's offices in Kensington, and the prospects of large and lively protests and pickets, our demands have been met. As of 1 April cleaners will all receive the London Living Wage of £10.20 an hour.
Some cleaners have been scrubbing and polishing the Mail's offices for nearly 20 years. They were previously paid only the minimum wage of £7.50 an hour.
It's not migrant workers who suppress wages, it's miserly and unscrupulous employers who take advantage and keep them on the breadline. Perhaps the millionaire editor of the Daily Mail, Paul Dacre, will reflect on this before he sits down to sign off on another anti-migrant headline.
