MBTA Janitors Stop September Mess

MBTA Janitors Stop September Mess

After months of protests by workers, elected officials, community members and T riders, the MBTA is calling off a plan that would have cut 1/3 of the janitors on Labor Day.

“The MBTA’s decision to reconsider these drastic cuts is good news for workers and T riders, said Roxana Rivera Director of 32BJ SEIU District 615. “We look forward to continuing to work with the MBTA and its cleaning contractors to find cost-saving alternatives that save taxpayer dollars while ensuring the quality service, safe jobs and standards of cleanliness that the T riders deserve.”

With more than 150,000 members in 11 states, including 18,000 in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, SEIU 32BJ is the largest property services union in the country.
