24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Dan Mahoney, Attorney - Friday, July 7, 2017


While the Union is aware of the letter that was sent by the Sheriff, as well as the letter the County Board President sent to the Sheriff, it is important to note that neither the County nor the Sheriff have notified the Union of any proposed layoff. 

Our Collective Bargaining Agreement requires the Joint Employer to notify the Union of any proposed layoff. If that does happen, the Union will notify you immediately.

As you are aware, we have begun negotiations with the County and the Sheriff,  We will continue to bargain in good faith, while monitoring the current situation.  The next scheduled negotiation date is Monday, July 10th.  At that time, the interim Chief Financial Officer will present the sate of the County's finances to your Bargaining Team.

Both the Union and your individual Stewards will update you as information becomes available.
