Workers rally ahead of contract ending

LOS ANGELES The contract for more than 55,000 nurses, road crews, park employees, social service workers, library employees and others is set to expire at midnight Wednesday. They are members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 721.

Many carried signs as they rallied outside the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration where a Board of Supervisors meeting was taking place. Some read "We can build a better LA County" and "Health Care."

At issue are safety concerns on the job as well as affordable health care.
