Waving signs and chanting loudly, a group of disgruntled janitors staged a small demonstration Friday outside the main office of the Algiers Charter Schools Association, questioning the association's decision to ditch their company and hire a more expensive one for maintenance and janitorial work next year.

The dozen or so picketing janitors, who work for the custodial and maintenance company GCA Services Group, said they didn't understand why ACSA had refused GCA's bid of $2.168 million for the upcoming year of service, thereby putting about 60 employees out of work. Instead, ACSA hired commercial cleaning company Jani-King, which submitted a bid of $2.257 million.

"To me, it's a very underhanded thing," said Helen White, 68, who until last week worked as a custodian at Edna Karr High School in Algiers. "Nobody even let me know. I had to find out through my co-workers."

Local 100 Helps Launch Immigration Campaign PDF Print E-mail

These are pictures from the June 1st launching of the Reform Immigration For America campaign in New Orleans conducted jointly with Local 100 SEIU and New Orleans ACORN.

The event opened with press conferences around the nation. In New Orleans, it was at a Lowe's Home Improvement store with day laborers, who use the store site to find daily work.

Reform Immigration For America is trying to get Congress to pass immigration reform this year. It backs a "common-sense solution to our broken immigration system that strengthens equal opportunity and the rule of law, treats hardworking immigrant families with respect and dignity, and moves all communities and families in America forward together."

 
Groundbreaking Contract for Napoleonville Members PDF Print E-mail

On May 20th, SEIU 100 signed a new pay scale for all employees at Heritage Manor Nursing Home in Napoleonville, LA. All LPN's received an extra $1.50 per hour. CNA's and Dietary Cooks received $.50 more per hour, and if CNA's show up on time and work a full shift they receive another $1.00 per hour. Non-certified Aides, Dietary Aides, Laundry and Housekeeping received $.55 cents per hour.

These are the highest wages for workers we represent in Louisiana nursing homes, and the incentive pay for showing up on time is a first ever anywhere in Louisiana, which we hope to implement in all other nursing homes in the state.
