KANSAS CITY, MO – The following is a statement from SEIU Local 1 janitor Doris Williams:
“In March, Secretary of State Kander stood with 900 Kansas City janitors as we fought for a living wage. By coming together, we were able to win a strong contract that will help us provide for our families.
“Now, we’re proud to stand with him as he campaigns for the U.S. Senate. He has proven he is on the side of working families like mine.
“The janitors, maintenance mechanics, stadium workers, and adjunct professors of SEIU Local 1 will work hard to get out the vote for Jason in November, and we look forward to working with him after his victory.”
SEIU Local 1 unites nearly 50,000 working people across the Midwest including more than 3,000 in Kansas City. Local 1 in Kansas City represents a wide array of working people, including school cafeteria workers, maintenance mechanics at Kauffman Stadium, industrial workers, and commercial janitors.
