Lone Tree, Colo. (AP) Janitors are staging a one-day strike at Park Meadows Mall in suburban Denver.

The service employees international union says 17 workers had signed a petition backing Tuesday's strike. A union organizer says there's five workers picketing just beyond the mall's parking lot. He expects more to join them at the start of the evening shift.

The workers aren't members of the union but it says the mall's cleaning contractor has been making it difficult for workers to join the union. It says workers have been told not to talk to union representatives and union supporters have been monitored.

The executive vice president of Illinois-based the Millard group, Gery Kwiatowksi says he's not aware of any such complaints being filed against the company. He says he's only
aware of two janitors being on strike.
