"The complaints seek more than $20,000 in wages allegedly owed to Viernes and 8 of her colleagues, according to documents provided by union SEIU Local 2. The claims are filed against Impact Cleaning Services, which was contracted by multibillion-dollar real estate company Dream Office REIT to clean several of its Bay St. properties.The twist: Impact then subcontracted its contract to another company, MCC Inc., which is also named in the claims. In October, Impact lost its contract altogether to a new company called Amphora.That’s left Viernes, who has now seen the cleaning contract at 330 Bay St. flip three times in the past nine years, wondering who on earth she actually works for."
