Striking Janitors Agree to Pact With 2 Firms

IN BRIEF / LABOR

July 23, 2005|David Colker

About 350 janitors who clean the local plants and offices of Boeing Co., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Raytheon Co. agreed to a contract to end their nearly three-week strike against two cleaning contractors.

Servicon Systems Inc. and Somers Building Maintenance Inc. agreed to increase base pay to $8.10 from $7.25 an hour over three years and to give workers healthcare insurance starting in the third year of the contract.

A third maintenance company that was struck July 6, Aramark Corp., did not agree to the new contract. Local 1877 of the Service Employees International Union said the job action against Aramark would continue.

Executives at Aramark could not be reached for comment.
