Why this petition matters

Started by Chance Wenstley

Fellow Janitorial Union members,

As you know summer is approaching quickly. For a lot of us, we not only look forward to longer days and more sun but also our favorite part of our working summer, WEEKENDS OFF!!  Just recently we were informed that we no longer will be switching to a Monday-Friday schedule for summer, meaning we will continue to work our regular year schedule. Although there are no union rules being broken, this decision  will change what all of our summers look like and the time we get to spend with family. We will potentially be needing to use more Personal Time Off, seek more child care, as well as other unforeseen matters that everyone encounters when the days get nicer. This decision was made by people who will not be directly affected by us losing the perk of weekends off in the summer. Managers and above have the full ability to change this decision, realizing that productivity will not change but workplace morale will. This is a moment where being part of a union, WE have the opportunity to make a small change for ourselves and our summer. You don't have to want weekends off for yourself in order to back your union brothers and sisters, you just need to support the people who support you daily.  This is a last resort in hopes that we as a janitorial work force will have the opportunity to continue to savor looking forward to our summer Fridays and weekends off.
