Contract negotiations for the dispatchers at the Franklin County sheriff's office are in limbo, in part because of questions related to Senate Bill 5, the proposed overhaul of rules for public employees and unions.
Workers wanted to restructure the pay scale to create step increases based on each employee's experience, but a state fact-finder disagreed, according to a report released by the State Employment Relations Board. He also took the county's side on health-care premiums.
