Union wants OHare contract voided
The Service Employees International Union, SEIU, is again calling on a new janitors contract at the airports to be voided.
The action comes in response to an article in today’s Chicago Sun Times.
The paper reported the head of United Maintenance Company, which won the contract, sold off a significant portion of the company during the bidding process.
The SEIU says this development is grounds for re-opening the bidding process.
A spokesman for the city’s Office of Procurement Services says United`s electronic disclosure form was updated prior to the company starting work on the project and the city is not required to take any action as a result of a company not filing an updated report.
