Labor Relations Unit

Our Mission is to Build Positive Labor Relationships on behalf of the Board of County Commissioners and Elected Officials by striving for win/win negotiations with a focus on creating a positive work environment while being good stewards of citizens’ tax dollars.

Negotiation Guiding Principles

  1. Expenditures should not exceed revenues.
  2. Maintain a 10% rainy day reserve.
  3. Do not spend one time revenue for ongoing expenses.
  4. Establish and maintain adequate service levels.
  5. Sustainable health/welfare benefits require a sharing of the cost/risk of insurance.
  6. Employee benefits are consistent across Departments unless unique circumstances exist.
  7. Establish competitive total compensation package based on ability to afford and market.
