This Wednesday, April 23rd at noon,
Tufts janitors, Tufts students, and the undergraduate student group
Tufts Labor Coalition (TLC) will gather and march to university
administrators’ offices to call attention to violations to the janitors'
contract with the contracting company, DTZ/Unicco. DTZ has breached
their contract by not giving enough of their employees full-time work
and breaking with agreed payment methods. Tufts administration has thus
far not taken action to ensure that these violations are addressed by
their contractor. Many of the Tufts janitorial staff are residents of Somerville and surrounding cities. All
those who would like to encourage Tufts University to ensure the fair
treatment of workers from the surrounding community are welcome to join
the march. We will meet at noon on
the Upper Campus Center Patio (44 Professors Row, Somerville) and march
from there to Ballou Hall, the administrative offices at the Tufts
Please contact Giovanna Castro, chair of TLC's janitor and dining hall worker committee, with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
