Contract talks continue.

Meetings between the Realty Advisory Board on Labor Relations and Local 32B/J of the Service Employees International are continuing this week. A meeting was scheduled for Monday at 3 p.m. at the Sheraton New York.

"The issues are very difficult," said Realty Advisory Board Spokesperson Jim Grossman. "The two major issues are economics and management's right to operate their own buildings.

"The two sides remain very far apart," he continued, "but we can't predict what will happen by Friday because it is still four days away during which we can talk.

While most owners and managers have strike provisions in Place, it is still unclear if or when porters, cleaners and other maintenance workers, will walk off the job. Contracts expire on Dec. 31.
