Justice For Janitors (click for link)

Employees of Group Services France (GSF) have been struggling to make a change in the contract cleaning industry, and GSF has been fighting them with a campaign of threats and intimidation. On June 15th, 12 brave janitors working for GSF at Duke Realty’s headquarters and the One North Capital Building announced a one day strike to call attention to their plight.

“I work for GSF cleaning Duke Realty’s headquarters. I’m paid $6.50 per hour, but if I miss a day of work GSF cuts my pay by $1.00 per hour for the entire pay period. I don’t have any health insurance. This is no way to raise a family.”

— Erika Ramirez, a striking worker from Duke Realty’s headquarters building
