SALINAS, Calif. – Calling on Monterey County to settle a fair contract with its employees, hundreds of workers and their supporters will gather in Old Town Salinas Thursday to take their message public.

For months, SEIU 521-represented county workers have offered cost saving measures such as suspending vacation buy-backs, reducing vacation caps, and consolidating Human Resources to save jobs. The county has dismissed those ideas.

Thursday’s march and rally aims to highlight workers’ commitment to providing quality services to the community.

 WHAT:           Workers march for services, fair contract

 WHEN:          5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 30

WHERE:       March begins at SEIU Office, 334 Monterey Street in Salinas, ending at the Old Courthouse on Alisal Street.
