In a major success for Harvard janitors and the 99 percent, Harvard University contracted and direct janitors have reached a tentative agreement with the University that includes gains on three key issues-full time work, equality for all workers at Harvard, and affordable health insurance. Workers will vote to ratify the agreement on Friday.
Harvard University janitors have fought for one Harvard, with Fairness and Dignity for all. With Harvard’s reputation as a preeminent institution for higher education, this agreement will be seen as an example for other universities to treat workers with the dignity and respect they deserve. Details will be forthcoming, including a summary of the agreement and time and place for the vote.
