UFCW 1994/MCGEO has filed an unfair labor practice (ULP) charge against Montgomery County for failure to bargain in good faith. Despite having received proposals from Local 1994 months ago, the county waited until Feb. 5, three days prior to entering into mandatory mediation over the contract, to claim that a significant number of the proposals were non-negotiable. "The County has used this tactic repeatedly over the years, and when brought before the Labor Relations Administrator, the County has been found guilty of bad faith bargaining," Local 1994 told its members. "Mediation begins today and your bargaining team is truly committed to getting you the best contract possible. Stand united! Together we are strong!"
