Harvard fires janitor for fainting; SEIU protests!


Members of SEIU local 615 distributing flyers for support rally for Saintely Paul

Members of Service Employees Internation Union Local 615 distributing flyers for Friday’s support rally for Saintely Paul.


From the SEIU 615 flyer:

Saintely Paul has been working in the William James Hall for Facilities Maintenance Operations (FMO) for the past 6&1/2 years. He was fired at the end of June after he fainted at work. Havard refuses to rehire him despite medical documentation of his treatment . Upon firing, Saintely’s health insurance was taken away.

Rally with janitors, politicians, students, and faculty!
Friday, September 22, 5PM
In front of the Holyoke Center (Au Bon Pain)
Harvard Square, Cambridge


Contact Harvard University’s interim president Derek Bok by e-mail:

derek_bok {the normal at-sign goeth here*}

Or by phone: (617) 495-1502

Tell him that Harvard janitors deserve better treatment. Demand that Harvard reinstate Saintely Paul with back pay and cover the medical expenses he has incurred during this period.

Questions? Contact SEIU local 615 at 617-878-7403

This is not a request to cease services and deliveries. No dispute with any other employer.

*handing the President’s email address to spam-bots is counterproductive.
