Twin Cities janitors call one-day strike for Wednesday


About 4,000 janitors who clean Twin Cities office buildings say they will go on a 24-hour strike Wednesday after negotiations stalled with the cleaning subcontractors who employ them.

Members of Local 26 of the Service Employees International Union voted Jan. 23 to authorize the strike. The janitors' last three-year contract expired Dec. 31, and talks for a new deal began in October.

It will be the first strike by subcontracted union janitors in the Twin Cities in decades, according to a statement from the union.
