The 532 union workers at the housing complex were on strike since June 1 over health benefits and wages, allowing garbage to pile up at Co-op City, which is home to some 55,000 tenants.

RiverBay Corporation wants the workers to switch to a different health care plan, but the union refuses. RiverBay, however, has agreed in principle to increase wages by 2.33 percent every year for four years.

The sides say there is no set date yet for when the negotioations will continue.
