Local 1 Celebrates The Women Who Make Chicago Work!

On International Women’s Day, hundreds of Local 1 women janitors and custodians who clean our Chicagoland offices, schools and public buildings rallied with their allies as #WomenRise for good jobs and a strong new contract!

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and Chicago Ald. Susan Sadlowski Garza (10th Ward) were among the elected leaders who joined the celebration to support the women who make Chicago work!

Local 1’s women members kicked off their contract campaign on behalf of 12,000 Chicago-area janitors, 70 percent of whom are women.

It was a great event and an empowering day! Women rise! ¡Mujeres guerreras! Silne kobiety!
