Recently SEIU 32BJ organized the 8 office cleaners employed by American Maintenance at 1010 Northern Boulevard. The union contract went into effect March 1 and the workers received their first raise June 1, 2020. The first union contract provided modest increases to the wages and benefits, gradually increasing the economic benefits to reach the established union standard for office cleaners on Long Island over the next 3 years. Previously the workers were paid minimum wage without many benefits. Most of the cleaners work part time at night. Office cleaners provide essential cleaning and disinfecting services.
