Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2001 nlon By Dave Keller Staff Walter The union that represents most county employees has filed a grievance against the county, alleging it has violat- ed an agreement to consult with the union before making changes to working condi- tions. The union is threatening to file a lawsuit, alleging unfair labor practices. The union and the county are currently deadlocked in their attempts to agree to a new contract for workers rep- resented by the union. A state mediator has been .called in with hopes of facili- tating an agreement. The first meeting is set for Sept. 13. In an Aug. 23 letter to the county administration, the union claims the county ap- proved an annual $480 premi- um increase in the employee health plan without meeting and conferring with the union. The union claims that the it wasn't notified of the meet- ings that resulted in a pact to increase premiums. Meanwhile, the union is al- leging that the county ap- proved a plan to increase the allowable comp time for em- ployees to 180 hours without meeting and conferring with the union. Also, the union is alleging the county has adjusted salary ranges during the past two years without meeting and conferring with the union. In addition, the county has tried to reclassify employees without meeting and confer- ring with the union. The union contends the county's actions are a viola- tion of state law and the em- ployee's memorandum of un. derstanding with the county. Union officials are claim- ing that the county has been unwilling to resolve the mat- ters. "The issue of health bene- fits is a part of the current contract negotiation. The is. sue of compensatory time off is part of the current contract negotiations. The issue of classification is part of the current contractual negotia. tions," the letter to the county said. And you thought ALL went fast before. VALtE 2019 E. Main St., Quincy 1~ ATVI hlvt ikva~ gone faiL But r~ witl~ $1 | day ~l~g m EVERY YamlM moOe4, ~ zero et~*~m, Ihly're going flmt~ t~ lv~.

The Hot Springs at Woody's is going to be closed, folks. The owners are down to their last nerve dealing with vandalism, broken gates after hours and the blatant violation of a few simple rules, mostly covering com- mon courtesy. This facility is not public. It rests on private property and the owners do not want to close it off, but the public is forcing their hand. If you want this wonderful spring to stay open, take care of it. For those of you who have caller ID as a service from Pac Bell and have lost it, there is hope.
