United Workers Association Making History At Camden Yards
17 Mar 2005 14:01 GMT
After two years of sweat, hard work, and committed leadership from the United Workers Association, we have won a significant victory fall all day laborers and low wage workers in Baltimore City. For the first time in the history of Baltimore and quite possibly in the United States, a corporation has been forced to recognize its relationship to its day laborers. Knight Facilities Management has signed an agreement with the United Workers Association, adopting a Code of Conduct. For the past 8 years workers have endured working without pay, sexual harassment, no breaks, blacklisting, and without any mechanism to voice these grievances. The Code of Conduct signed by Knight Facilities Management ensures that these abuses will no longer take place.
