Crossing guard workers and detention aides said they’re doing dangerous work while protecting the public. Which is why they want the same union contract as some other city of Chicago workers.
The Service Employees International Union said they want the same deal the city has with the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees.
The city didn’t immediately return requests for comment. SEIU said it met with city officials. A counter offer was presented.
Union reps would not reveal details of the contract, only saying that the discussions continue.
