Then, the workers will consolidate all picket lines in Hartford at 10:00 AM.

The union anticipates negotiations with Sunrise will resume in the afternoon.

The strike began over a dispute about the over $184-million dollars in additional funding the State approved for group home facility operators to give raises and improve benefits.
