Cutback to cleaners hours put shoppers health at risk

Filthy conditions in Melbourne’s biggest retail centres could expose Christmas shoppers to bad bacteria.

The cleaners’ union, United Voice, claims gift hunters are at risk when the same mops are being used to clean toilets and food areas, and food court tables are wiped down with the same cloth and water for over two hours.

Cleaners at many of the biggest shopping centres fear cutbacks to their hours have left them too little time to do their jobs and will leave Victorian’s exposed to a pre-Christmas epidemic.
