Video: Janitors march, vote to authorize potential strike in LoDo

Chants of "Si se puede!" and "Justice!" filled the air yesterday as downtown janitors marched on 16th Street for better conditions and voted to authorize a potential strike. The contract for almost 2,300 Denver janitors will expire at the end of June, and after four weeks of negotiation with contractors who employ janitors in 95 percent of downtown office buildings, Local105 of the Service Employees International Union may be on the verge of a work stoppage.
