Support Weslyan Janitorial Staff!!!

Support Wesleyan's Janitorial Staff - Petition in Solidarity with Wesleyan's Janitorial Staff

  • Janitorial Staff have been forced to absorb massive and unrealistic workloads.
  • Many have health problems and repetitive stress injuries from their work
  • Many workers have been laid-off in recent months forcing the remaining workers to absorb their work.
  • Wesleyan can protect the workers by stopping the layoffs and requiring the sub-contractors to fairly distribute work.
  • Wesleyan workers should maintain the right to representation through a union.
  • The financial burden to Wesleyan of stopping layoffs is minuscule.

Wesleyan is accepting bids on February 15th from companies vieing for the contract to clean Wesleyan. RIGHT NOW, Wesleyan can require the sub-contractors to respect the workers.

Please sign this petition to stand in solidarity with Wesleyan's workers.

Occupy New England: 2/19-New Haven

 

Sunday, Feb 19, 2012
2-9PM New Haven Green
Come one, come all, for the first Occupy New England regional action! Try to get there either in the morning or by noon, so you aren’t late. There will likely be action from the morning until night on-site.


The massive Occupy New England March is scheduled for 2 p.m. sharp from the Occupy New Haven site on the “Upper Green” (the area bounded by College, Elm, Temple, and Chapel Streets). The march is a broad-based appeal to everyone from New England and beyond to show the 1% that we’ve got the numbers, and as long as inequality occupies our country and the world at large, we aren’t giving up!

Also, if you would like to stay at Occupy New Haven (whether it’s for the night, for a week, or for good), bring a tent, a sleeping bag rated to 5 degrees or lower, and lots of warm stuff! You can stay for however long you like. There is plenty of room for everyone.
