Sheriff’s employees union headed to mediation
Labor negotiations between Plumas County and the Sheriff’s Department Employees Association are at impasse.
Following Tuesday’s closed session, the Board of Supervisors reported the county and the employees association have agreed to mediation.
According to the supervisors, the state will provide a mediator at no cost to the county.
The sheriff said last month that his department could face staffing cuts unless there were concessions by the union.
