- Seattle Janitors Prepared to Strike
June 25, 2012 — Custodial workers in Seattle, WA, voted Saturday to authorize a strike if janitorial companies fail to reach a contract with their union.
Over 3,000 workers, all members of the Service Employees International Union, agreed to the strike after a lack of progress in contract negotiations between the union and contractors, reports Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The workers’ current contract with area janitorial companies expires June 30. Under terms of the strike authorization vote, union members could strike 10 days after that if a new contract is not reached.
