| No Comments

A union of 2,000 security guards are preparing for a one-day strike Sunday, news sources reported.

Over 100 security workers in the Service Employees International Union Local 26 and supporters gathered on Sunday to prepare for a possible strike on Monday, the Pioneer Press reported.

Some of the area's largest corporations like Target, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, along with other corporate buildings could be without security guards this week if the strike moves ahead, according to the Star Tribune.

Talks with the SEIU local 26 and contractors broke down on Friday.The union said it would continue with a strike if a deal was not reached by Sunday, the Star Tribune reported.

"We said if our deadline was not met, we would strike, so this week we will strike," said President of SEIU Local 26 Javier Morillo at a rally for the workers Sunday.
