Since you are covered under the master janitorial contract, your pay will go up by 20 cents starting Jan. 1. This isn’t a holiday gift from your boss – Local 1 members across the St. Louis region fought for this raise. It’s a reminder that when working people – white, Black or brown – come together in union, we win higher wages, better benefits and a brighter future for our families. And later this year, if we unite, we can win a strong new contract with good raises and better benefits too.
If you do not see your raise reflected on your paycheck within 2 pay periods, please call the Local 1 Member Resource Center at (877) 233-8880 to get things resolved.
And because Missouri working families came together across racial lines and different backgrounds, the minimum wage in our state rose today from $7.80 to $8.60. This was a big victory for Local 1 members and more than 600,000 Missouri working families who will see their wages rise. Make sure to let your coworkers, friends and family know!
