Security officers picket on Nicollet Mall


Security officers picketed Monday morning near 8th Street on Nicollet Mall in a one-day strike to protest what union officials termed “unfair labor practices” by three of the Twin Cities largest security contractors.

The strike was called after negotiations broke down Saturday night between the union and contractors Securitas, American and ABM. Union members are demanding affordable health care from their employers, said David Zaffrann, a spokesman for Service Employees International Union (SEIU) local 26.
