Union Members to Get Out the Vote for Broward County’s Mayor–
Mayor Keechl has been on the forefront of 32BJ SEIU’s campaign to boost wages and health care coverage for janitors and security officers. With this support, hundreds of janitors at Fort Lauderdale International Airport won a first-ever union contract with employer paid healthcare, paid vacation and job security.
“The Mayor is a long-standing supporter of SEIU’s efforts to raise industry standards and improve the working conditions of low-wage workers,” said Monica Russo, President of SEIU Healthcare Florida.
As part of its political program, 32BJ SEIU intends to mobilize its members to turn out voters in support of Mayor Keechl’s reelection.
With more than 120,000 members in eight states, including Florida, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service union in the country.
