SEIU 521 Member Armando Mercado, a Social Services program Supervisor at the County of Fresno, was disciplined on June 4, 2018, for alleged discourteous treatment of the public and/or other employees, willful violation of any county code or lawful departmental or county regulation or order and impairment or disruption of county services.
Armando sought out the help of SEIU Local 521 Contract Enforcement Department (CED) who filed an appeal to the Fresno County Civil Service Commission on his behalf.
Our SEIU 521 Contract Enforcement Department (CED) represented Armando at the Civil Service Commission hearing on December 18, 2018.
The Fresno County Civil Service Commission ruled in favor of Armando in a 4-0 vote to dismiss the disciplinary action against him and reverse the three-day suspension.
