It’s been 10 years since Long Island Jobs with Justice first opening its doors in 2003. Remember when we built a community campaign in support of janitors who worked at Smithhaven Mall? At one protest, we gave out hundreds of balloons to shoppers that read “Justice for Janitors.” The janitors later unionized with 32BJ SEIU. Remember when we gathered together our Workers’ Rights Board members to support school bus drivers who were looking to unionize with the Teamsters, Local 1205? Months later, nearly 1,700 workers joined the union in one of the most successful union drives Long Island has ever seen.
