Cleaning workers to vote on whether to authorize strike


(AP) — Labor union leaders say hundreds of Connecticut building cleaning workers are set to vote on whether to call a strike if a fair agreement is not reached on a new contract with local cleaning contractors.

Officials with Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union say the votes will be held Saturday in Hartford, New Haven and Stamford.

If workers approve a strike, they could walk off the job after midnight on Dec. 31, when a current contract expires for more than 4,000 cleaning workers across the state.

Negotiations between the union and contractors began last month.
