San Bernardino County’s largest employee union is teeing up on two county supervisors it believes are unfair towards its members.
Supervisors Janice Rutherford and Neil Derry are each in the process of bringing proposals forward, at a special meeting on July 31, in an attempt to gain control of rising pension costs threatening the solvency of the county’s pension system and general fund budget.
The only real effect the proposals would have on existing employees is they would have to pay all of their required employee contribution to the pension system.
Now the San Bernardino Public Employees Association (SBPEA) has posted a tirade on its website.
All this in a county where employees can retire at more than 100% of their base salary.
