WHITE PLAINS-Members of Local 32E Service Employees International Union went back on the job on Wednesday morning after their union reached a tentative three-year contract agreement with the Building and Realty Institute of Westchester and the Mid-Hudson region.

Local 32E has scheduled a vote on the proposed contract on Friday Oct. 13, according to Matthew Persanis, an attorney who represented the Building and Realty Institute. The pact calls for about a 4% increase in wages and benefits each year, Persanis says.

Meanwhile, a strike in Farifield County by Local 531 Service Employees International Union continues and the job action thus far affects about 20 commercial office buildings.

Fairfield County janitors who walked off the job at commercial office buildings to protest unfair labor practices announced on Tuesday that it plans to intensify the strike and that they have received a total of $500,000 in cash from janitors across the US.

Fairfield County janitors began their first-ever county-wide walk-out on Oct. 4.
