Janitors who work in Kansas City Public Schools have voted to join a union.
The union vote came earlier this month, when 90 custodians elected to join the Service Employees International Union Local 1, which represents more than 300 workers in the district.
The custodians work for the Marcis & Associates janitorial services firm, which earlier this year won a $10 million, three-year contract with the school.
Union members had supported the district’s decision to give the contract to a new company, saying the previous firm did not recognize union workers and that schools had seen a decline in cleanliness amid understaffing.
