I HELP PROTECT THE WORKERS THERE AND THE PUBLIC EACH DAY. I'M A MEMBER OF THE BARGAINING COMMITTEE FOR THE COUNTY SECURITY OFFICERS. I'M HERE TODAY ON THEIR BEHALF AND THE OFFICERS THAT WORK AT THE COUNTY FACILITIES. LAST WEEK, WE PRESENTED AN ECONOMIC PROPOSAL TO THE CONTRACTORS THAT WORK FOR THE COUNTY, WHICH IS SECURITAS IN NORTH AMERICA. OUR PROPOSAL WAS MODEST, BUT IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARD MOVING A BETTER RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US AND THE COUNTY AND THE CONTRACTORS TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE. OUR PROPOSAL IS BASIC. IT'S AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE, MODEST WAGE INCREASES, AND PAID SICK DAYS AND PAID HOLIDAYS. IT'S A STRUGGLE HAVING TO GO TO WORK WITH THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AND NOT FEELING IT WHEN IT TREMBLES. IT'S A TROUBLE HAVING TO STAY AT HOME AND BE WORRIED ABOUT MISSING EIGHT HOURS OF WORK, MISSING A BILL. FROM OUR PROPOSAL, WHAT IT MEANS TO ME IS A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH MY WIFE AND MY FAMILY AND BETTER HEALTHCARE FOR MY FAMILY. WITH A NEW CHILD ON THE WAY, I'LL BE ABLE TO PROVIDE MEDICINE AND TAKE THEM TO THE DOCTORS AND TAKE MYSELF TO THE DOCTOR. ALTHOUGH WE'RE NOT ASKING FOR MUCH, THE CONTRACTORS HAVE NOT SIGNED OUR PROPOSALS YET. WE URGE YOU TO PLEASE STAND WITH US AND SUPPORT US AS WE GO TO THE BARGAINING TABLE WITH THEM. ONE THING THAT I WAS READING ABOUT TODAY WAS COUNTY C.E.O. RECOMMENDED A POLICY TO MAINTAIN SECURITY SERVICES IN THE EVENT THERE'S AN INTERRUPTION IN THE CONTRACT SERVICE IN ORDER TO ENSURE CONTINUAL GOOD SECURITY HERE AND AT THE COUNTY FACILITIES. AS SECURITY OFFICERS, WE KNOW THE BEST
