COLUMBUS: A union representing hundreds of Columbus janitors says members have gone back to work after a one-day strike.

The Service Employees International Union Local 1 says workers returned to work Wednesday night after progress was made on reaching a new agreement with cleaning contractors. Janitors had gone on strike Tuesday.

The union says more negotiations are set for Monday.

The union represents about 1,000 commercial janitors in downtown Columbus. The union had said that contract janitors who clean several prominent high-rises authorized their most recent job action on Tuesday.

Janitors say they are seeking acceptable wages, affordable health care and full-time hours.

The union has been negotiating with the Columbus Area Service Contractors Association. The association didnít immediately return a request for comment.
