Janitors' protest turns into celebration outside Best Buy shareholders meeting

20 Jun 2016 11:06 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)


Janitors speak outside Best Buy's headquarters Tuesday morning, a day after the retailer agreed to hire a "responsible" contractor for cleaning services in its Twin Cities area locations.

A planned protest outside of Best Buy Inc.’s shareholders meeting Tuesday morning turned into a small celebration after the janitors who clean its stores reached an agreement with the Richfield-based electronics retailer to use a “responsible” contractor.

Best Buy made the pledge Monday night to Service Employees International Union Local 26 (SEIU), which has pressed for better conditions, including the right to organize, for janitors who work at Twin Cities Best Buy stores.

Details are still to be hashed out, but the janitors’ allies likened it to a similar agreement reached with Minneapolis-based Target Corp. in June 2014.
