Local 211, other units not receiving raises

I wish to clarify some facts in Steve Schulwitz’s story “Board approves pay raises for some employees” in the Friday, March 28, edition of your paper.

Commissioner Lyle VanWormer is quoted “There are raises starting this year for the union workers.” However, the hard-working, well-deserving members of USW Local 211, who also are providing the county and taxpayers a value with the work that they do, have not and will not receive a raise this year. To my knowledge, neither will the hard-working, well deserving members of the other county bargaining units.
