Justice for Janitors in Downtown Pittsburgh
01/23/2004
Despite dangerously cold weather, Pittsburghers gathered Friday morning in support of nine union janitors who used to work in Downtown's Center City Tower until they were unfairly fired for union activity last month.

SEIU Local 3 filed a federal lawsuit this week against Independent Management Co., the New York-based operators of the building, and has pledged to continue this campaign until the workers are reinstated. Picketers were out as early as Thursday, but were arrested by the police at the request of management.

Friday's picket saw a large number of union members and supporters who gathered to express their dissatisfaction with management and show solidarity with the workers.
