According to the Paxton Record, roquois County’s dispatchers have filed their intent to unionize, but they did so without notifying the county board.
County Board Chairman Rod Copas said that Naperville attorney John H. Kelly, who purports to represent the county’s 911 board, also known as the Emergency Telephone System Board, did send the state a letter saying that both the 911 board and the county’s dispatch board, or ICOM board, had no objections to the dispatchers’ plans to form a labor union.
“But they did not notify the county board in any way, shape or form,” Copas said during Thursday’s meeting of the county board’s policy and procedure committee. “So we have filed an objection to that with the state. We’re waiting on a response.”
This is just the latest issue in the ongoing saga surrounding the county board, 911 board and ICOM board.
