Beaver County Social Workers Strike Averted; Tentative Contract Agreement Reached

There was no strike today by social workers employed by Beaver County. Union employees from three agencies whose deal ended last summer reached a tentative deal with the county last night, which means they did not resort to a scheduled one-day work stoppage. Beaver County Commissioners Chairwoman Sandie Egley told Beaver County Radio’s Mike Romigh on Teleforum today that the 11th hour talks were “conversations” between the county and the union “family”. She said most of the talks surrounded the issue of health care benefits. She says county workers will be paying more towards their healthcare coverage. The union will present the tentative agreement to the general membership for a ratification vote.
