California Briefing / Los Angeles County

1-year extension on contracts

February 19, 2009|Garrett Therolf

Los Angeles County supervisors announced Tuesday that they have agreed to a one-year contract extension with 17,000 public safety employees that involves no cost-of-living or salary increases.

The contracts with firefighters, sheriff's deputies and others expired in December and January.

The extension allows both sides to avoid negotiating a new three-year agreement during the county's uncertain financial circumstances.

"There is nothing hidden in this. There are no side deals," said county Chief Executive William T Fujioka. "I think it shows . . . a great willingness to be partners with us during difficult times."
