Microsoft Janitors Get New Employer

SBM Takes Over Contract from Able Services

Our union janitors at Microsoft have a new employer—SBM Site Services. As a union, we’ve worked hard to keep our janitors’ jobs stable through this transition.

Together, we’ve made sure our janitors maintained their seniority and healthcare. We looked out for those who needed help in applying for their jobs and ensured that the paperwork went smoothly.

By looking out for each other, our members demonstrated that a strong union can mean job stability, and making sure we don’t let each other fall through the cracks.
