Deadline looms for Co-op City maintenance workers' strike
Talks are continuing as the current contract for Co-op City maintenance workers is set to expire at midnight. The union representing the workers, Local 32BJ, says is it still negotiating with the RiverBay Corporation for better wages, sick days and vacation days, as well as medical coverage. RiverBay says workers need to switch to a more affordable health care plan. One resident told News 12 The Bronx that there are compactors already locked across Co-op City.
