Winnebago County Workers Hit the Picket Lines Thursday

By  | 

Representatives from both sides met for five hours Wednesday, but did not come to an agreement.

Union leaders want larger raises than the county is willing to offer. The union represents about 500 workers, so county offices are already preparing for a major shortage.

About 340 employees will hit the picket lines at River Bluff Nursing Home at 5 a.m. No new contract negotiations have been scheduled.
