    SEIU Local 615 Calls for a Criminal Investigation After 2 Reports Find UNICCO Recklessly Disregarded Industry Practices and OSHA Safety Standards - PR Newswire
    The MassCOSH report states that UNICCO's failure to implement safety measures ordered in 2003 after a fatal accident involving two window cleaners, '...not only cut short the life of one worker and seriously injured a second but put the lives of all of its window cleaners in jeopardy.'

    Window cleaner Jose Camara was killed and his co-worker Carlos Lopez was seriously injured in the accident. Camara's niece Claudia Victoria, said 'My uncle was so excited about finding a better life for his family in America. What makes his death so hard to bear is that it was so unnecessary and preventable.'
