Mayor Parker Calls for Renewed Negotiations in Janitors’ Strike

Mayor Parker issued the following statement today regarding the ongoing janitors’ strike:

“I am calling on the contracting companies to go back to the negotiating table. Their unwillingness to talk has left the union with no other choice but civil disobedience. That is not good for the City of Houston or our economy and it is not how we do business in Houston. We work hard, we work together and we treat each other fairly. The union has made good-faith offers. Now it’s time for the janitorial contractors to sit back down at the table to work out an agreement that is fair and just.”
