WOODHAVEN — Custodians and maintenance workers are preparing buildings for the start of school now that a judge has blocked privatization of various services.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael Sapala issued a permanent injunction July 28 against the school district’s plans to privatize those services and transportation.

….. About 60 transportation, custodial and maintenance workers are members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union.  First Student, based in Ohio, and GCA Services Group, based in Illinois, were set to come in and take over the duties of those employees.
