The Rockford Building Maintenance Association is starting the fight for their jobs.
Back in October of 2000 RBMA negotiated a contract with the Rockford School District. That contract is up and their union has been negotiating a new contract with the district.
But the Rockford School District is now looking at outsourcing this custodial work. That would mean 190 current employees would loose their jobs.
The custodians are holding an informational picket in front of the district's administration building Monday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
