PC Janitors Ready to Strike

SEIU Justice for Janitors PC janitors have been subject to harassment and intimidation as they fight for a fair contract. They need our support:

Contracted Janitors at Providence College
READY TO STRIKE
Against Unfair Labor Practices!

This weekend Providence College will celebrate Parents Weekend. The contracted janitors who keep the campus clean have announced their intention to hold a 72-hour strike if they cannot reach an agreement with their employer, Hurley of America, by the time their current contract expires at the end of Thursday, January 31st.

As workers have organized in support of a just contract, Hurley of America has responded with harassment and intimidation. If necessary, the janitors are willing to sacrifice their pay to stand up for the respect and dignity they deserve as workers. As PC students are reuniting with their families, Hurley employees on campus, with strong support from students and faculty members, will take action in the hope of a better life for their own families.

IN THE CASE OF A ULP STRIKE ON PARENTS WEEKEND, THE JANITORS NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

Starting this Friday at 7 a.m., we will be at the campus gates 24 hours a day, all weekend long.

Join our picket line! If you can come even for an hour or two it will be greatly appreciated – your presence makes a difference. We will be at the PC campus gates on Huxley Street and on Eaton Street

Feed the picket line! Consider bringing something to eat or drink to share with the strikers and their supporters.

Make a donation! We will be accepting contributions in the form of money or non-perishable food items to support the families of striking janitors. Drop off at picket line or at 431 Washington Street in Providence. Make checks payable to SEIU Local 615 Justice for Janitors Strike Fund
