8:30 PM:
USX Building on Grant Street starting at 8:30 p.m., Thursday, July 28.

Janitors at the First City Tower in downtown Houston went on strike last week for a better life for their families. In a show of unity not seen in years, SEIU janitors across the nation who work for the same company (ABM) are refusing to cross picket lines set up by Houston janitors in major American cities from coast to coast.

The Houston strike is in reaction to threats by the nation's largest cleaning company, ABM, against workers tying to secure better jobs and affordable health care. Houston janitors, who are paid an average of $5.25 an hour and receive no benefits, are uniting in an historic effort to win better jobs and affordable health care by forming a union with SEIU.

The Houston janitors need your help...

*** Tell ABM to stop threatening janitors and instead provide good jobs with health care.
