The contracted janitors at Tufts University are asking only for what they deserve: just wages to support their families and full time work to give their loved ones healthcare coverage.
Tufts talks about their commitment to the community and now its time for them to stand up for their ideals and help these workers!
The Somerville Board of Aldermen will be voting on a resolution in support of the Tufts janitors that evening. I hope you all can come out to support these hard working janitors and support this resolution. Help us stand for dignity and respect in the workplace!
It would be much appreciated if some of you could come out, or pass it around your circle. I don’t have to tell you guys what kind of power people powered media has, so any support you can lend will be more than welcome.
To disclose I am a Tufts student (Tufts 2010, major in philosophy) and am working with SEIU 615 this summer (the Union that represents these janitors) to help the contracted janitors at my school get the respect they deserve.
