The essential Janitors who keep the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) clean and safe have joined SEIU Local 1. We love to see the union family growing and are happy these Janitors now have a union contract.
Their new contract includes:
- $1.15 raise in the first year and $1.57 in the second year!
- Free family health insurance!
- 401k Plan contributions!
- Won a grievance procedure!
Wintreal Holland, Janitor at SAIC for 30 years, knows the importance of this win for himself and his co-workers, “For too long, my coworkers and I have been fighting for strong union jobs that allow us to provide for our families - Jobs that allow us to build a better future! Now, we are joining the most diverse, powerful union in Chicago where we won a strong contract that does just that!”
As time moves on, Wintreal and his co-workers will be able to negotiate for more and join the thousands of other union Janitors who have their back.
