Social service and clerical workers could go on strike in as soon as 10 days unless Hennepin County and union leaders reach an agreement before then.
Represented by two bargaining units of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), workers filed their intent to strike on Wednesday, according to the Minnesota Reformer.
Leaders of AFSCME Local 34 and Local 2822 are asking for 5% annual increases over the next three years, a $200 monthly stipend for home office supplies and better personal protective equipment, according to the Reformer.
