San Jose workers suspend strike

1 min read

The workers of San Jose City suspended a strike that was supposed to start on Tuesday. 

According to union leaders, there has been substantial progress in conversations with the city. 

They say the city council will be holding a closed session to review the agreement starting tomorrow morning. 

The strike would have seen half of San Jose city workers out for three days. 

Last week, workers voted to authorize the strike, hoping to receive better pay because they are doing more work.
