Janitors: USWW Stands for Family
Justice for Janitors! For more than two decades, the Justice for Janitors movement has helped low-wage workers achieve a better life and has earned broad-based support from the public as well as religious, political and community leaders. More than 225,000 janitors in cities across the country have united in SEIU, America’s largest union of property services workers.
From across California, more than 25,000 janitors united in USWW are leading the effort for good jobs including wages you can raise a family on, access to quality health care and respect on the job.
We are SEIU USWW
"I'm with USWW because before I had a union I had to work two jobs to make ends meet. By joining with my fellow janitors and forming a union, we won respect on the job and the chance to earn enough to live in California."
"I was a victim of sexual violence while working as a janitor on the night shift. Working with my fellow janitors, we no only won a good contract that had new protections against sexual harassment and sexual violence, but we also passed a bill that extends these protections to all janitors in California. I'm so proud of the work I was able to do"
