LT Services custodians join UFCW 1994
The employees of LT Services are the newest members of the UFCW 1994/MCGEO family. The workers, custodians who clean the Montgomery County Council building, voted 31 to 11 April 6 to join Local 1994. "Yayaya!!! We won," said jubilant LT Services organizing leader Cristela Noemi Gomez, celebrating the victory. "Thank God, we now have the chance to negotiate a contract for a better future. We welcome the union!" Said Local 1994 president Gino Renne, “Congratulations to our newest MCGEO sisters and brothers; we are privileged to have you.” Negotiations for a first contract for the 84 workers, predominantly Latina women, are expected to begin soon. "They don't have anything,” reports Local 1994's Ray Lee. “No paid time off. No healthcare. No nothing. Everything will be on the table for bargaining."
