Local 615 mulls strike as contract expires

Hurley of America, tabbed this week for a job by the Carcieri administration, is being accused by Service Employees International Union, Local 615, of taking part in unfair labor practices. The union, which represents 12,000 janitors across New England, says it is poised to strike as the janitors' contract expires today.

In a news release, Local 615 rejects an offer for Providence workers of a 15-cent raise and one sick day for up to the next five years, "a contract that does not reward their hard work."

Contracted janitors and their supporters are slated to demonstrate this afternoon at several downtown buildings, including Textron HQ.
