November 20, 2009
HOUSTON — Four contract cleaning companies providing services to businesses in the Houston area have reached contract extension agreements, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), 3,200 janitors from ABM Industries Inc., GCA Services Group, ISS Group, Aztec Facilities Services Inc. and Pritchard Industries Inc. will continue providing services on a day-to-day basis, the story stated.
The companies'' contracts were set to expire today, but the extension can last up to 30 days, giving the union more time at the bargaining table, the story noted.
Pritchard Industries was not directly involved in the contract discussions as they "refused to bargain in good faith," the story added.
