WHAT:  JACKSON COUNTY EMPLOYEES SUPPORT RALLY
WHEN:  WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5 AT NOON
WHERE:  ALBA PARK IN MEDFORD, 301 W. MAIN STREET

Our 600 Jackson County employees are at a dead end after contract bargaining starting back in February comes to a standstill and they now find themselves working without a contract since June.  County management refuses to recognize the work they do for the community and settle a fair contract.

Time for the community to understand what is going on and to show workers the respect that is lacking from county administration.  These workers provide important services for everyone in Jackson County.  They keep our roads clear, the airport operating and our communities safe while providing vital health and human services.  It is way past time they be treated with respect for the jobs they do.

Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice stands with our Jackson County employees and will join them in solidarity this Wednesday, October 5th, 12 noon at Alba Park in Medford. I hope you will join us.

For more info, check out this exclusive interview on KSKQ with Jackson County Employees. If you have any questions, please let me know.

In solidarity,
