Justice for Janitors’ rally and march set for June 15


On Thursday, June 15, the Service Employees International Union commemorates the anniversary of the famous “Justice for Janitors” campaign in the city of Los Angeles.

On that day, janitors rallied to demand better working conditions. The violent reaction of the police to their protest caused worldwide repulsion, and as a result L.A. janitors won the union representation they wanted.

The commemoration in Minneapolis will start with a rally at Rally at 11:30 a.m. at Government Center Plaza, corner of 5th St. and 4th Ave., in downtown Minneapolis. The rally will feature a mariachi band. At noon, participants will march from Government Center Plaza to Peavey Plaza.

Join SEIU Local 26 Janitors and community members in marching for Justice for Janitors and all workers.
