J4J in Canada
On June 16, 2007, hundreds of janitors came together in Toronto to discuss a plan to raise standards and win respect for all janitors. J4J had finally launched in Canada.
Improving conditions for workers in our cities fast growing cleaning sectors, require that industry leaders, politicians, janitors, and communities come together to work on a comprehensive strategy that changes the race to the bottom for cleaners.
Today more than 7,500 janitors in Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, and Vancouver have united under the Justice for Janitors banner with a plan and a vision for a better future.
Together with community leaders, J4J can transform poverty-wage jobs in our communities into jobs with a brighter future for working families. Together we can do better.
More than 225,000 janitors in more than 30 cities throughout Canada and the United States have already united in SEIU to create a better life for themselves and their families.
