How come the employees only come up with ideas when there is a pending vote ? If the wanted to reduce wages and benefits and throw out the union they should have done that before the FIRST vote on a possible sale. They would have shown they really wanted to help reduce costs.

The major cost they will never give up is pension. This is why they are fighting so hard to stay county employees. Do I blame them, no. But the realty is this county can no longer afford to carry this home like it has for many years. Privitization is the only viable way to keep the doors open. Anyone who says different has their own agenda.

They should have come to the table a couple years ago. The legislators better not give in.

The ploy is to stall a vote on the sale until the union can find another stall. Even if the employees decertify the union, what stops them from reunionizing after the sale is stopped.

As the curtain comes down on the County Home, CSEA wants to make amends.

Time and time again, this union has shown itself to be a terrible partner with government.

Rid the government of unions such as CSEA and you'll get a government responsible to the people.

as an unapoligetic leftest (who actually has a stencil of Che Guevarra over his mantle in the living room) I have been totally in favor of this sale for two years. Now, if a communist/leftest like me favors the sale....who's left besides the employees at the trough?

Hopefully the Legislators will listen to the tax payers and not be intimidated by the CSEA. All the CSEA cares about is their enormous retirement and benefits they don't care that keeping the home is costing the tax payer money daily. Vote to sell it and put it back on the tax rolls.
