Report: Johns Hopkins employees could strike again

BALTIMORE - Johns Hopkins Hospital employees could be back on the picket line soon.

The Baltimore Business Journal reports workers will vote today on a measure that calls for a new strike.  

After months of negotiations, there's still no agreement between the hospital and a union representing nearly 2,000 service, technical and maintenance workers. The employees say they aren't being paid enough.

Workers want a “15-15 plan. That translates to $15 an hour for those who have worked at Hopkins for 15 years. If the workers vote to strike tonight, they'll have to vote again on a date for that strike to begin.

Workers walked the picket lines in April for a three-day strike to protest low wages.
