Shasta County declared contract talks a failure and unilaterally impose wage and benefit cuts
The Redding Record Searchlight
REDDING, Calif. — If righteous outrage could refill Shasta County's depleted treasury, the sheriff's deputies wouldn't need to take a pay cut.
The union representing deputies, jail guards and other county officers has lambasted the Board of Supervisors and County Administrative Officer Larry Lees. It's cried foul that other unions aren't facing concessions as severe as the Deupty Sheriff's Association. It's taken out radio ads blasting - what else? - palm trees.
