REDDING, CA - Despite foul weather in Redding today, Shasta County Strikers adapted to rainy conditions to continue their fight for fairness and job safety.
UPEC Chief Negotiator Steve Allen continued informal discussions this morning with County officials to steer both parties in a positive direction. UPEC Business Manager Chis Darker is optimistic these discussions will move the agenda forward. "I think the County has a better understanding of where our members are coming from and what our members are seeking in these negotiations. Personally, I feel better about it today than I did Monday", said Darker.
Shasta County General Unit members walked off the job January 30th and are planning to return February 6th.
