SHERIFF RESPONDS TO IUPA PLOY

PIO Number: 18-4-16

Date: April 20, 2018

In response to IUPA Local 6020 announcing they will be holding a "vote of no confidence" and following a recent phone conversation in which Union President Jeff Bell told Sheriff Scott Israel with all the Parkland stories in the news, this would be a good time for him to settle the contract issues, Sheriff Israel issued the following statement today:

"It is unfortunate and appalling that the IUPA union boss - in the midst of ongoing labor contract salary negotiations - is trying to use the Parkland tragedy as a bargaining tactic to extort a 6.5 percent pay raise from BSO through this 'vote of no confidence' ploy," Sheriff Scott Israel said.
