Nearly 480 CPS custodians to be laid off

Nearly 480 custodians who clean the Chicago Public Schools will lose their jobs at the end of this month.

The district privatized school janitorial services to the firm Aramark in March.

Since then, an activist group says principals have been complaining about the cleanliness of their schools.

The affected workers are not among the roughly 800 school district employees who clean schools, but are part of the group of Aramark subcontractors hired for this work, said a CPS spokesman.

Affected workers will be notified by September 30.
