County Employees Stage Walk Out
Posted Thursday, March 6th 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News

Social workers and other county employees are staging a wildcat walkout to call attention slow going union negotiations. 

The employees chose to walkout and demonstrate at Sacramento Executive Airport because it's county owned.  

Members of United Public Employees Local 1, number close to 3,800 employees.  

They say they've been without a contract for almost eight months.  

Ted Somera is the unions director. He tells News10 the county is dragging its feet in negotiations on pay.  

"We want the county to come back to the table and provide us a true cost-of-living  increase. We're asking for a two-year contract," Somera said. 

Somera says it's like this between the county and all of its employee unions.  

United Public Employees Local 1 has voted in favor of a strike, but has yet to set a definitive date for a work stoppage.
