Cleaners and janitors secure tentative union contract, averting strike

A breakthrough tentative union contract has been achieved for 1,600 cleaners and janitors in Connecticut, heralding significant wage increases, expanded paid time off, and the preservation of existing benefits.
The agreement, preventing a statewide strike, follows intense advocacy by the union during Hartford rallies for fair compensation, citing the risks taken by its members amid the pandemic.
The contract is set to be finalized next month pending a vote.
