In Minneapolis and St. Paul, 600 janitors have won union recognition after a more than seven-year campaign that saw a series of short-term strikes. The janitors work for mega box stores, including Target, Macy’s and Best Buy. The campaign was supported by the Minneapolis-based United Workers Center in Struggle. The workers are now joining the Local 26 of the Service Employees International Union and will start collective bargaining in efforts to win healthcare and higher wages.
