Press Conference April 25, 2012


Diversified Maintenance Systems workers to release white paper exposing the reality faced by retail cleaning workers in the Twin Cities metro area and around the country.

Nearly two years ago, in August 2010, retail cleaning workers with CTUL held a press conference announcing the Campaign for Justice in Retail Cleaning, aimed at gaining fair wages and working conditions. While we’ve had many victories, the struggle continues as Twin Cities’ retail cleaning workers continue to organize. Workers who clean Kmart and Sears stores have recently come together and signed the majority of their coworkers up on petitions seeking a meeting with their employer, Diversified Maintenance Systems. To date the company has refused to meet with workers.

On Wednesday April 25th at 12:15pm, workers will hold a press conference to reveal the findings of a recent white paper on the retail cleaning industry, publicly announce a potential class action lawsuit, and make their demands heard. Join workers at this important event!
