Jobs With Just Us?

SEIU vs SEIU
Will the real Janitors Stand Up?
The recent Justice For Janitors Protest in Portland turned out somewhat farcical, when recently fired SEIU School Custodians showed up asking for some "Justice" from the union that replaced them with cheaper labor.

A Jobs With Just Us Staffer reportedly went over to the former Custodians and asked them to leave.

So much for encouraging Rank and File action...
