City school workers authorize strike

Workers who clean for the Pittsburgh Public Schools, transport equipment and prepare thousands of student meals each day have authorized their negotiating committee to call a strike whenever necessary. Members of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 297 gave the authorization Saturday, but no strike is planned at the moment, union President Jeff Frontera said yesterday.
