It’s On! Riverside County Members Decisively Authorize Escalation Up To & Including a Strike
After 5 weeks of voting at worksites throughout the County and the Inland Regional Office, Riverside County members emphatically authorized an escalation up to and including a strike with a 98% yes vote!
Member leaders conducted the final ballot count at the Inland Regional office on Thursday, May 25th with dozens of member volunteers on hand to tally and check ballots from worksites spanning every major Riverside County Department from the desert communities to the City of Riverside.
The escalation authorization represents an important step in the County employees’ ongoing fight to defend and restore the vital frontline services residents rely on. While County leadership has continued to propose thoughtless cuts to offset their gross financial mismanagement, employees today sent a clear message that they are willing to do whatever it takes to protect quality services for County residents.
