In 1990 members of the L.A. janitors union launched a strike that became a turning point for the labor movement. The “Justice for Janitors” campaign pit low wage, mostly immigrant women and men against powerful local business leaders and multinational corporations.
On June 13th, we will celebrate the brave women and men that sacrificed for the struggle. Century City showed us what organized labor can be and what our power can accomplish. On this day Janitors are launching a statewide campaign to continue the fight for immigrant rights calling on building owners to support sanctuary workplaces, end to rape on the night shift and provide good jobs for immigrant workers. Join us!
