Today in Labor History

June 15, 1990
Battle of Century City, as police in Los Angeles attack some 500 janitors and their supporters during a peaceful Service Employees Int’l Union demonstration against cleaning contractor ISS. The event generated public outrage that resulted in recognition of the workers' union and spurred the creation of an annual June 15 Justice for Janitors Day.

Stewards Undergo Extensive Training Designed to Sharpen Skills
Updated On: Apr 12, 2012


MAR. 21, 2012 |  Sixty-three of our shop stewards are brushing up on their representational skills at "Education for a Democratic Workplace," a Local 570-sponsored 3-day steward training conducted by Professor Michael Childers from the University of Wisconsin's School for Workers, a university extension of continuing education and outreach.

"This seminar presents a great opportunity for our leaders to learn, but also network with other Local stewards which helps them better understand the issues facing them in their own shops," said Principal Officer Sean Cedenio.

Childers advised stewards to "look at every conversation you have with a member as an opportunity to grow the union." The seminar will conclude tomorrow. More coverage to come.
