Bronx and city day care workers end three-day strike

The three-day strike by Bronx and city day care workers ended Friday.

The city has made offers to both unions protesting. CSA, which consists of directors and assistant directors at the day care centers, will be meeting on Monday to discuss the offers made to them.

The day care workers say their last contract expired three years ago, and the last time they had a raise was four years ago. They want salaries equal to that of public school teachers since many of them have master's degrees. In addition to better pay, the day care workers want more vacation time.

Thousands of parents have been forced to find alternative day care for their kids during the strike. Officials say the day care centers should be opened again on Monday.

Union representatives say they are hoping to do more negotiating with the city as soon as Tuesday.
