    Chicago Public School principals say schools remain ‘filthy’ under $340 million dollar janitorial contracts. 

    A year after Chicago Public School hired private companies to clean schools, many principals remain completely unsatisfied with the work, saying the benefits of the $340 million contracts have yet to materialize. 


    At least 260 of 522 principals of district-run schools answered surveys by the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association, and 200 of them said that their schools were not cleaner than before Aramark and SodexoMagic took over janitorial services. More than 200 also said the contracted services did not free them up to spend more time on instructional issues as promised, according to the survey.

    An Oxnard business owner pleaded guilty Friday to four felony insurance code violations related to workers’ compensation payments, according to the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office.

    Janitors who clean Chicago Public Schools buildings said Thursday that schools are dirty because the private mega-company managing them has cut too much staff.

    And if Aramark doesn’t agree to add 500 more custodians during contract negotiations, members of SEIU Local 1 will strike, union president Tom Balanoff told the Chicago Sun-Times in the wake of reporting that showed some 90 schools failing district-led “blitz” cleaning inspections.
