T.O.M. Controll 2001, provider of real estate maintenance and operation services, including cleaning, security services and the wholesale of office supplies in Hungary, is to dismiss some 200 employees. The most affected by the dismissal are cleaners who carried out the cleaning of schools in the Southern Hungarian city of Pécs. They are mainly of disadvantaged background, most of whom are Roma or people with disabilities. The reason is that the local government of Pécs, which is in charge of supervising the operation of local schools, annulled a tender that had been announced for the cleaning services at schools claiming that every proposal they received amounted to more than what the local government intended to spend on cleaning. The municipality therefore left it to the schools to organise cleaning services from January 2007.
