On Oct. 5, 2010, New Haven workers and their community allies will hold a demonstration in front of City Hall as we call on Mayor DeStefano to put good jobs first and stop the attacks on public services. Be there and help us send a powerful message.
Mayor John DeStefano has a new economic development program for New Haven: Throw 200 school custodians out on the street by privatizing their jobs and replacing them with low-paid workers under the thumb of a profiteering contractor. Remember Aramark? This will be worse.
The New Haven Board of Education’s motto is Kids First. We agree. So how exactly is the city putting “kids first” when it suddenly lays off five workers, including four from the Head Start program? Find out what happened and check out the videos of our workers talking to the New Haven Register.
