KQED: Fresno Janitors Sue Employer, Alleging Continued ‘Rape on the Night Shift’
Bay Area NPR affiliate KQED featured a segment and published an article about ERA’s new lawsuit against janitorial company ABM, including coverage of our press conference upon filing in Fresno. The press conference featured remarks from 2 of our clients in the lawsuit, Equal Rights Advocates Legal Director Jennifer Reisch, and our union allies at SEIU-USWW.
We are suing ABM for the second time in 7 years for sexual harassment, retaliation, blacklisting, and other workplace violations.
The article features quotes from our clients, and from Jennifer, including:
“It is not the first or the second or the fifth time that this company has been sued by janitors who’ve been raped, sexually assaulted and harassed on the night shift,” Reisch said. “But I really, really hope that this the last.”
