Take Action: Stop Brooklyn Law School's Anti-Worker Activity!

For decades, Brooklyn Law School has contracted with responsible unionized night cleaning companies at its main building at 250 Joralemon Street in Downtown Brooklyn. This legacy is now in jeopardy. Brooklyn Law School is planning to cancel its contract with Triangle – a responsible cleaning company that respects workers’ rights to organize and provides family-sustaining wages and benefits – and replace this contractor with low-road, anti-worker contractor Advantage Cleaners starting today.

Advantage Cleaners is under investigation by the NLRB. Under Advantage Cleaners, the workers, members of 32BJ SEIU, would face a slew of negative changes. They would lose their employer-paid comprehensive healthcare coverage and their retirement plan, and they would see their wages fall from between $24-30 an hour to $17 an hour, an almost 50% cut in pay. Click here to demand that the school reverse this anti-worker decision and commit to continuing to contract with a responsible contractor that will ensure that the overnight cleaning staff retain their current wages and benefits.
