Seven Hundred SEIU 87Janitors In SF Strike For PPE & A Contract: 26 Have Died From Covid

Seven hundred janitors who are members of SEIU 87 went on strike after a year without a contract.

Janitors said that the contractors want concessions on healthcare and have also failed to protect them from covid on the job.
The union reported that 26 San Francisco janitors have died from
COVID-19 and janitors said that they had to buy their own masks since they were not provided with enough.
The pandemic according to the janitors has also been used to undermine seniority.

The companies have laid off senior janitors and hired new janitors at substandard pay undermining the wages and union contract. Janitors said they want equal pay for equal work and the rehiring
of the 3,000 janitors as the buildings up up.

This strike will go for three days and then other workers at other buildings will go out according to
the union members.
