    The County’s involvement with the unions is suspect, at best. Last year, AFSCME had elections for new leaders, and employees, including myself, saw management of the agency engaged in deep conversations with one group that was running. They allowed them to break the rules regarding campaigning on County premises and time, and met with them against all rules. Now, instead of the strong, effective leadership that they had before, there is a puppet regime that does nothing to represent the employees in grievances. The County goes out of its way to stack the union deck in its favor, and buys the “leadership” that suits their needs, not the employees.
