Female night custodians demand safer work conditions, greater University accountability

04 May 2018 8:33 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)

Over 75 students attended Wednesday night’s “When The Campus is Asleep: Voices of Female Custodians Who Work the Night Shift at Stanford” event, which featured a conversation with four female custodians from United Service Workers West, a subdivision of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU-USWW).


The custodians gave up their only break during their eight hour-long night shift, which starts at 6 p.m. and ends at 2:30 a.m. each night, to voice their demands for better work conditions at the event.

The meeting, co-hosted by the Stanford Solidarity Network (SSN), took place in the Women’s Community Center. Rebecca Armendariz, political representative for SEIU-SSW, served as translator between the Spanish-speaking custodians and the audience.
