SEIU: Federal Contractor Hasn't Paid Walter Reed Bethesda Janitors

More than 200 janitors say they haven't been paid for two weeks, The Gazette reports.

More than 200 janitors who work at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center say they have not been paid for two weeks by their employer, a Gaithersburg-based company that contracts with the federal government, The Gazette reports.

The Services Employees International Union Local 32BJ has filed a complaint with the federal labor department, petitioning the government to stop disbursements to the company, Escab Enterprises, and pay the workers directly, according to the report.

The company has asked the janitors to continue working, according the report.

Naval Facilities Engineering Command, which oversees Walter Reed Bethesda housekeeping contracts, was looking into the complaint Monday, according to Walter Reed Bethesda spokeswoman Sandy Dean.
