Online Petition and Leaflet for Cleaner Jobs

Contracts that cover 12,000 building cleaner jobs in D.C., Maryland, Northern Virginia and Baltimore expire on October 15th.  These jobs help support families that are an integral part of our communities. The men and women who clean our offices deserve fair pay raises, fair workload standards, and the creation of more full time jobs with benefits.  SEIU 32BJ wants to make sure that employers come to the table and bargain in good faith. They need strong community support to withstand pushback from employers and win a fair contract for every union office cleaner. Please see below for how you can take action to support Justice for Janitors! Learn more at the DC Jobs with Justice website.
