Corporations such as Target, Ecolab and others have largely declined to comment on the labor negotiations, referring questions to their janitorial and security contractors.

While those contractors care for corporate office buildings across the Twin Cities, those offices are not the only ones facing a possible strike order Sunday.

About 400 nonunion janitors who clean Twin Cities Target, Best Buy, Kmart, Sears, J.C. Penney and other stores said they are also prepared to walk off the job Sunday unless employers agree to labor talks and higher wages. Some make $8.50 an hour, have no benefits and say they have been threatened for trying to form a union.
