Cleaners, union, community to speak in support of the ‘Better Jobs Act’

Hartford, CT – March 6, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, Connecticut cleaners, union leaders and supporters will speak in support of Raised Bill No 6877—the “Better Jobs Act,” which would ensure that building service workers of large buildings are employed in shifts of no less than 30 hours a week.

The consequences of over-relying on part-time workers in building industry has negative consequences for workers including insufficient income, lack of access to health and other benefits, excessive job turnover, and unnecessary costs to taxpayers.

The Better Jobs Act, which 32BJ SEIU supports and is advocating for, will be introduced in Public Employees Committee Co-Chaired by Senator Ed Gomes and Rep. Peter Tercyak.
