Security guard, janitor contracts expire; sides keep talking

Managing Editor- Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal

Union negotiators return to the bargaining table this week to meet with maintenance and security companies, after contracts for thousands of janitors and guards expired.

Minnesota Public Radio reports that deals covering 4,200 janitors around the metro and building security staff in Minneapolis and St. Paul, expired Dec. 31.

Union members at SEIU Local 26 rallied last month on the contract issues, which include salary and health care, KMSP-TV reported.

The sides narrowly averted a strike at the last labor deal in 2010.
