County, Union Talks Stalled as Negotiators Seek New Venue

October 19, 2000

LOS ANGELES — Negotiations between Los Angeles County officials and the county's largest union were on hold Wednesday as labor leaders searched for a new site for the discussions.

During and after Service Employees International Union, Local 660 called a brief countywide strike last week, the union and county officials negotiated at the Furama hotel in Westchester. But after bargaining late into Tuesday night, the union's lease on rooms there expired.

Union and county officials said they hope to find a new site by today and resume negotiations, which both sides described as productive.

At issue is a three-year raise for 47,000 county service workers, from clerks to nurses. The county has offered 9%; the union wants 15.5%.
