Union Sues Fresno County Over Health Worker Pay Cut
Service Employees International Union United Healthcare-West has filed a lawsuit against Fresno County to prevent a pay cut for workers who provide in-home care to seniors and people with disabilities. In April, county supervisors voted to cut workers' overall compensation by $1 an hour in an effort to reflect cuts in state funding. However, SEIU United Healthcare-West argues that the wage cut is illegal.
