Rep. Osienski joined members of SEIU Local 32BJ to show support with their on-going struggle with Optima Cleaning Systems in Wilmington, DE. In 2009 LU 32BJ filed an unfair labor practice against Optima with the NLRB. The case accused Optima of violating National Labor Relations Act by discriminating against employees in terms of hiring, tenure, and conditions of employment.
This thereby discouraged its employees from becoming members in a labor organization. The case was settled and seven employees received back pay totaling nearly $25,000.
