HV apartment building employees get new contract, strike averted

Posted: Updated:

After taking their protests to the streets, some 1,400 Hudson Valley apartment building employees are getting a new contract at the eleventh hour.

The employees work for apartment buildings in both Rockland and Westchester, and have now secured a four-year plan that provides wage increases every year and employer-provided health care coverage.

Union officials say that the agreement is a win-win situation for everyone, but the contract must still be ratified by a full union vote.
