Feb. 24, 2011 – San Benito County workers convinced the county supervisors to delay job cuts long enough to look at safer ways to save money.
At the Feb. 22 Board of Supervisors meeting, workers rallied in support of a close look at administrative costs, rather than eliminating three jail workers – a move that would put the safety of the remaining workers in jeopardy. When the discussion resumes at the March 1 board meeting, workers will continue to ask the board to look at alternative solutions to layoffs, including possible cuts from pay and benefits and savings in admistration costs.
This action followed last week’s informational picket, when members walked in unity in front of the county administration building.
