As many of you know, last year the 5,300 Janitors in Houston won an historic victory following a month long strike. This year, the janitors are continuing to organize thousands more workers in Houston; these workers include food service and janitorial workers at George R. Brown Convention Center, Reliant Center, Minutemaid Park, University of Houston, Houston Community College System, and many other worksites around the city. The workers at these sites make just above minimum wage plus nothing- no healthcare, no vacation, no respect.
In order to win this fight for a contract and a better life for themselves and their families, the Service Workers will need the help of community leaders and activists- they need to know that you support them in their struggle. SEIU Houston Justice for Janitors Campaign invites you to our Convention for the Future- the public kickoff to this organizing campaign:
WHAT: SEIU Convention for the Future
WHEN: Saturday, November 10, 2007
PLACE: Jones Plaza in Downtown Houston (Texas & Louisiana)
The workers cannot with this fight without you. Please come to this very important event. For any questions, please contact me at (832) 277-3903 or at the numbers listed below.
SI SE PUEDE!
