News update: Union support for cleaning staff at Langara

Justice for Janitors imageThe LFA has been asked by the BC Federation of Labour (BCFED) to share the attached poster with LFA members. The LFA is an affiliate of the BCFED. The BCFED is urging LFA members to offer any moral support and encouragement to campus cleaners to join a real, BCFED-affiliated union, SEIU Local 2.

There is a sense of urgency to this. As early as this week, cleaning staff will have the opportunity to vote to join SEIU Local 2.

The poster has already been posted on various information boards on campus. Feel free to share this poster and to consider posting in your office.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the LFA. We have also compiled an information sheet about the working conditions of cleaning staff at Langara College that you may find helpful.

LFA Information Sheet: Cleaning Staff at Langara

In response to recent developments on campus, the Langara Faculty Association has assembled an information sheet for its members about the working conditions of cleaning staff at Langara College. The LFA believes in transparent processes. We also want all the players on campus to know that we stand in solidarity with the hard-working people who keep our campus clean.
