SEIU Local 521 Fresno County Bargaining Team reported late Wednesday that there was progress made in Sacramento!
Fresno County’s negotiators agreed to ask the Board of Supervisors to come back to the table for mediation.
The all-day mediation meeting was confidential, so we won’t have more details. A hearing to investigate the PERB complaint against the county’s unfair practices is still to be arranged, but that might be avoidable. This development comes after more than 2,000 workers waged a three-day strike this week, demanding a fair contract. Looks like workers made an impact!
