The BEIS strikers, who are demanding the London Living Wage, held a lively march, assembling at the University of London, where they were joined by the MoJ contract cleaners who have just won a pay victory.
The strike was timed to coincide with a landmark employment rights case at the High Court.
The MoJ workers, organised by the United Voices of the World (UVW) and the University of London cleaners belonging to the Independent Workers of Great Britain (IWGB), joined the march.
It ended at Parliament Square with a lively rally with speeches, music and dancing.
