Rally Calls on Genzyme to Stick with a Union Cleaning Contractor
Cambridge, Mass. - The Kendall Square branch of the pharmaceutical company Genzyme was the target of a protest Thursday. Around 30 members of the Service Employees International Union Local 32BJ called on the company to hire what they call a “responsible contractor” from the bids for an upcoming cleaning services contract.
The union is pushing for a contractor that will maintain what they describe as “industry standards,” and protect over 150 unionized jobs at the company.
