email in the streets of sacramento  


the janitors are having to take their struggle for better jobs and stronger communities to the streets once again.

the janitors' actions have resulted from Universal Building Services' (UBS) continued cutthroat working conditions; minimum wages, no medical benefits, no respect, and illegal firings. the NLRB is currently prosecuting UBS.

Pacific Bell buildings and the Elks Building are cleaned by UBS janitors.

SEIU local 1877's justice for janitors campaign has been successful in sacramento in convincing many property owners and management companies to contract with union janitorial companies. these union companies provide their employees with working conditions most of us expect at our jobs.

all workers in the downtown area are asked to join the rallys in support of the UBS janitors. the next rally will be held on 102501, 1407 J St, at 4:30 pm.

SEIU 1877 also requests we call leonard brusseau of UBS at (510) 527-1078, and tell him we want better working conditions for these janitors.



  over 30 janitors, union organizers, and supporters arrived and took up placards and bull horns in front of the Pacific Bell building.


  'Everywhere we go, people want to know, who we are...so we tell them.'
