Exec Sez Healthcare Award Could Cost $1 Million

Though Northampton County is dragging its feet about producing a copy of the ruling, Director of Administration Luis Campos and Executive John Brown have both admitted that, earlier this month, they lost a major union grievance. It was filed by AFSCME Local 1435 over the Exec's unilateral decision to reduce health care benefits, starting this year. The arbitration award impacts about 650 Gracedale workers. At yesterday's budget hearing, Brown predicted this could cost the County about $1 million. Though that's a lot of money, it's a lot less than the $2.5 million figure I was initially provided.

Does Brownie or his empty suit administrator Campos really know what the hell the numbers are?

John Brown = Worst Executive in history!

the numbers are very hard to pin down, all members didn't use healthcare and some used it more than others, so it is a very difficult number to arrive at. i don't think it has anything to do with Brown not knowing anything, this time.
