ci Janitors March on Wilshire The entire Beverly Hills Police Department was deployed last week to ensure safety. By Shirin Danielpour Although Los Angeles Union Janitors continued to march through Beverly Hills this week, the union has hinted that they might be willing to work for compromise at the bargaining table. Union janitors are currently receiv- ing an average of $8.40 per hour plus full health benefits. The union is violence or arrests. According to Kreins, however, police must always anticipate the worst. "You always plan for the what if," Kreins added. "We hope this doesn't have to esca- late," said Bianca Gailegos, spokes- woman for Service Employees International Union, Local 1877, which represents 8,500 janitors in Los | |It [the slTike] is disruptive and problematic. There is a lot of peer pressure as to who went out and who didn't. || -- Dick Dotts, president of Diversified Maintenance Services demanding a $1-an-hour annual raise over the next three years, while employers have offered a 50-cent raise the first year followed by a 40-cent raise in the next two years. On Friday, April 7 there was a pil- grimage of janitors who walked from downtown, through Beverly Hills to Century City where they reportedly backed up traffic for hours. Red-shined union protestors arrived in Beverly Hills late in the afternoon where they received support from community members who encouraged their stance. Storekeepers and pedestrians collab- orated in cheers of support as janitors marched through the Golden Triangle last week. Even, commuters honked their horns in support of the union's fight for justice. "We fully deployed the whole depart- ment," said Lt. Edward Kreins of the Beverly Hills Police Department. Lt. Kriens reports that there was no Angeles County. "The janitors have a bargaining table to see what they will accept, but they're not going back to the table until they get the $1," she added. Dick Dotts, president of Diversified Maintenance Services, which employs approximately 800 union janitors in Los Angeles County, is hopeful that they will return to the bargaining table to reach a solution soon. "It [the strike] is disruptive and prob- lematic. There is a lot of peer pressure as to who went out and who didn't," Dotts said. Dotts reports that they are currently using non-union janitors as a replace- ment with the same wages. In an unfair labor strike, however, union workers cannot be permanently replaced by non-union members. Gallegos claims that the property owners are so desper- ate that "they have 15-year-olds cur- rently cleaning the buildings." I Save 50% or More Clarification: The pull quote attributed to Mayor Vicki Reynolds in last week's Beverly Hills Weekly "Democracy and the Royal We" was not actually spoken by the mayor, but rather a hypothetical statement referred to by columnist Ellen Stem Harris. Harris is not at fault. The problem occurred in the Weekly's typesetting process. Illrli I Jlltlll I ! lllil  Iti L);C EP I If 'h,:A L '.
