Twin Cities Janitors Set to go on Strike Wednesday

Nearly four thousand janitors are set to go on strike in the Twin Cities after contract negotiations failed. 

Janitors with the SEIU Local 26 will walk off the job on Wednesday.  

This is the first strike by sub-contracted union janitors in the Twin Cities in decades. 

The janitors have been in negotiations for months with employers.  Their three-year contracts ended on December 31. 

Union representatives have been fighting for $15 an hour for the workers, and healthcare benefits. 

According to the SEIU Local 26, many of the janitors clean the equivalent of over 20 homes every single night.
