Janitors, security officers rally in Boston


BOSTON (AP) — Hundreds of Massachusetts janitors, security guards and airport workers will be rallying for better job security and higher wages.

The workers plan to gather at the Boston Common Monday morning to urge wealthy corporations to help rebuild the middle class. They will march from the Common to Copley Plaza after the rally.

Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray, labor union officials and others are also expected at the event.

Organizers say the rally will include local janitors who are pushing for better jobs that bring them closer to the middle class.

The event is sponsored by Local 615 of the Service Employees International Union, which represents 18,000 property service workers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
