JUSTICE FOR JANITORS: Second Week of Janitors' Strike Sees More Civil Disobedience
Fourteen community members, including Cambridge State Representative Jarrett Barrios, were arrested in an act of civil disobedience to support the janitors of SEIU local 615 as they entered the second week of their strike. The act was part of a full day of rallies and pickets to support the striking janitors. The janitors' strike targets major downtown Boston buildings serviced by contract cleaning agencies, especially UNICCO. The union's main demands revolve around better healthcare coverage, more full-time employment, and higher wages.

LABOR: "Shop-In" for Shaw's Workers--and Janitors
Check OutOn September 28, twenty shoppers participated in a "shop-in" at the Shaw's/Star Market near MIT. The shoppers wore bright yellow T-shirts reading "We support Shaw's/Star Workers Right To Organize". The UFCW is in the middle of a one-year-old campaign to organize 5,500 workers at 44 Shaw's and Star Markets (both owned by Sainsbury) throughout the state. Star Market refuses to hire workers full-time, making them ineligible for benefits, even though they work thirty to thirty-five hours per week. The company has also held intimidating meetings at which they tell workers that joining a union is a bad idea.
