Janitors come to contract agreement, avoid possible strike

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of Hudson Valley janitors have come to a contract agreement and averted a potential strike.

The tentative contract was reached between Services Employees International Union 32BJ and the cleaning contractor's association.

Workers previously rallied in White Plains--vowing to walk off the job by Dec. 31 if no agreement was made.

The union says the four-year deal gives a wage increase, maintains their employer-paid benefits and makes important rule changes.

The janitors work in buildings like the Westchester Financial Center and IBM.
