(DENVER POST) A dozen Spanish-speaking custodial workers at the Auraria Higher Education Center filed formal grievances with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Wednesday against their employer.

The group is charging AHEC with national origin discrimination, saying a lack of communication in their native language has resulted in unfair working conditions.

Tim Markham, an attorney representing the group, said issues have ranged from the janitors being pricked by needles to changes in scheduling that have led to pay decreases.
