Bronx and city day care workers still without a contract threaten to strike again

Day care workers across the Bronx and the city are once again threatening to strike if the city does not agree to give them a new contract.

The union representing the day care workers and the city have been back at the bargaining table for three months but have not been able to agree on a contract. In June, the workers went on a three-day strike demanding a 9 percent raise and renewed negotiations. The workers have not had a contract in three years and have not had a raise in four years.

A union representative says the workers will strike again if a deal is not reached. The workers say they need more money to keep up with the increased cost of living.
