Coalition of Window Cleaners and SEIU Local 1 Reach an Agreement

July 31, 2018 10:38 AM | Anonymous

As of July 27, the Coalition of Window Cleaners and SEIU Local 1 have reached an agreement and the work stoppage is over. According to the SEIU Local 1, “the agreement guarantees annual raises, brings window washers to a $26 base wage over the life of the five-year contract-representing a historic 27 percent wage hike- and doubles their life insurance from $50,000 to $100,000.”

The SEIU Local 1 window washers’ contract expired June 30. The employees wanted the new contract to reflect fair compensation for the dangerous work they carry out, especially during hazardous weather conditions. The higher wages and life insurance policy provide workers with the ease of mind that if there is a work related injury or death that their family will be taken care of.

The Coalition wishes to thank BOMA/Suburban Chicago and its members for their support throughout the negotiations and especially this past month during the work stoppage. Every employer is anxious to get back to work doing what they do best – serving their customers and the industry. They are excited to be back and will be seeing your members next week again earning their business and trust.
