Let me be the first to offer my congratulations to those brave souls who risk their lives every day sitting on their ass in front of a CCTV.

The struggle was long and hard, but well worth it. Instead of the 30% to 41% that their brothers and sistes in the janitorial trade demanded, the security guards settled for a very sweet 3% per year raise.

Well done.

You have the admiration of all the little children in the Twin Cities. After all, everyone should aspire to be as good as you guys are.

SEIU Local 26 security officers reach tentative agreement

Twin Cities' security officers represented by SEIU Local 26 have reached a tentative agreement with their employers, the union announced this morning, March 1.

The 2,000 employees represented by the union conducted a one-day on Wednesday strike against the various contractors that employ them and returned to the bargaining table Thursday.

"We are exhausted but elated," said Elena Krelberg, a Local 26 security officer. "We won because we all stood together."

The new contract is the first for about 1,000 suburban security workers who formed their union in January 2011 and have been working to get a contract since then.

The tentative deal maintains the full-time status of hundreds of jobs and provides wage increases of $1.20 per hour over three years. The increase will bring an additional $18 million a year into the local economy, the union said.

Suburban security officers will also get employer-based healthcare coverage for the first time, and all officers secured an additional day of sick leave.

Earlier in the week, one of the contractors that serves area office buildings -- St. Paul-based American Security -- did approve a tentative deal. But six others didn't agree to that contract, sustained the one-day strike on Wednesday and then went back to bargaining. Those six firms that now have a tentative deal are G4S, AlliedBarton, Securitas, Viking Security, ABM Security and Whelan.

A spokesperson for the security companies could not be reached for

Was I fired or are you a TrashyLiar ?? Let's see, Hertz AT Sea-Tac is the best clue, right ???

Isn't it funny, you take no responsibility for your actions here, just like NO REAL MAN, would do. Pretty sad, for anyone who ever sees the real you.

Ps- Baron, butt kisser.
