Janitors, security guards march for better contract in Minneapolis

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Twin Cities janitors and security guards will march in downtown Minneapolis on Monday as the union pushes for higher salaries and better healthcare plans.

More than 7,000 janitors, security officers and airport service workers are represented by SEIU Local 26 in Minnesota. They're calling on others from the community to join the march in "taking their communities back from the 1 percent."

The janitors voted to strike in January of 2010 with the same set of demands. A new contract was approved on March 1 that year.

Monday's rally starts at 11 a.m. outside of the Hennepin County Government Center.
