Local 1700 Defeats Privatization Effort in Duxbury

"Congratulations to the members of AFSCME Local 1700 Duxbury School Custodians on their victory over a short-sited plan to privatize custodial services in Duxbury this morning. These members mobilized a campaign to educate the public on the pitfalls of privatization, were a constant presence at events in town, galvanized support from parents, students, and the community, and ultimately prevailed.

Despite the uncertainty and angst they dealt with on a daily basis as their livelihoods were on the line, dedicated members of Local 1700 were professional and as always dedicated to the students and residents of Duxbury.

When we fight, we win.”
