NEW: SEIU Janitors Reach Deal to Avert Strike
Monday, October 01, 2012
Details of the contract are expected to be released later today.
In total 14,000 janitors in Southern New England averted a strike by reaching the deal.
The SEIU had complained that many janitors are offered only 20 hours a week and in some locations, their pay is nearly $500 less than the average regional rent of $1,796 and barely above the federal poverty guideline. The union said it was seeking better pay, more hours on the job and healthcare for workers.
