HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Private security guards that work at state office buildings are planning a march through the streets of downtown Hartford.
The workers, employed by the New Jersey-based SOS Security, are scheduled to march down Capitol Avenue on Wednesday. Last month, a union filed an unfair labor practice charge on the workers' behalf with the National Labor Relations Board, claiming the company conducted an illegal surveillance of employees after an officer was allegedly threatened for engaging in union activity.
The union 32 BJ, which is part of the Service Employees International Union, has been working to unionize the approximately 50 guards employed by SOS.
A message was left seeking comment with SOS Security.

The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
