"The county's 3,500-person work force was asked at the start of the year to accept the freeze. All nonunion workers — about one-third of the work force — had their pay frozen immediately.
The three units that formally have accepted the freeze are two unions in the Prosecutor's Office and one in the County Clerk's Office.
Four other bargaining units — Care Center workers, Human Services administration, and Youth Detention Center officers and clerical workers — have voted to accept the freeze, but the document language has not yet been finalized, Heine said."
Hello? Knock Knock..? Hello? The tax payer is waiting for these "bargaining units" to decide on what? Do these people realize they have a job while 10% of NJ is out of a job?
Union mentality that "we are special because we have a contract with the State of NJ". B^llsh!t.
I'm glad that the "clerical workers" who have input and union ties understand they stfu as they have a job because we as taxpayers pay them. Also, The UNION CLERICS understand now, more than ever, that 5 weeks off per year along with tenure and a job because THEY ARE A UNION is better than unemplyment or working hourly!
