  • Shasta County General Unit Employees to hold Live Press Conference Today
    Posted On: Jan 13, 2017

    Redding, CA – The Union that represents over 1,000 Shasta County rank-in file employees announced today it will hold a Press Conference on Friday, January 13, 2017 at 12:00 noon at UPEC Headquarters 1800 Park Marina Drive Redding, California. This Conference will be held live on the UPEC Facebook page.

    Shasta County employees have continued to work without interruption while the Union and County officials navigate an impasse position and have completed a fact-finding process.  Unfortunately, the Board of Supervisors remained unchanged on the following three outstanding issues: Retiree Admin Fee, Safety of Employees and Union Employee Orientation.

    “Shasta County employees are very disappointed and angry with the Shasta County Board of Supervisors who continue to ignore recommendations to relieve the lowest paid employee’s of the so called Retiree Administrative Fee deduction from their paychecks”, said Chris Darker, Business Manager for United Public Employees of California Local 792.

    “This is an issue of fairness, plain and simple”, said Darker.  “This fee has been a financial burden to the lowest paid employees of Shasta County for decades. The Board of Supervisors could relieve the employees of this unfair imposition just as they did for the highest paid elected and appointed officials but they refuse.  It’s just another example of those at that very top taking care of themselves while those at the bottom pay for it!”, said Darker 

    Another important issue is that of Employee Safety. Certain positions have become increasingly more dangerous and employees are exposed to areas where enhanced safety precautions need to be implemented.  The County is ignoring these dangers and resolutions putting employees at personal risk.
