Montco Govt Unionizes
Under the incomparable leadership of Jim Matthews and Joe Hoeffel, some employees of the county will now be union members.
About 245 county employees working as deputy sheriffs and administrative support personnel in the Sheriff’s Office, Clerk of Courts, Prothonotary, Jury Board, District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office, Coroner’s Office and the Register of Wills’ Office would be represented by the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) District Council 88.
The vote was rather lopsided at 139 in favor to 57 against.
That will look great on a palm card, for Joe Hoeffel anyway.
