Custodians Plan Thursday Strike

February 26, 2020

About 4,000 custodians who service buildings in the twin cities area of Minnesota will strike tomorrow, rallying and marching through downtown Minneapolis, WCCO News reports.

Earlier this month, the custodians, members of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 26, voted to strike if a contract agreement was not met by February 19. Union members are seeking an increase in pay, six paid sick days, and an eco-friendly training program to help combat climate change.

The janitors are employed by dozens of building service contractors (BSCs) to clean corporate buildings. Negotiations continue between the unions and the BSCs. SEIU Local 26 has been negotiating seven contracts for over three months.
