County overtime issue matter of union contract

— “I don't know if it should be changed, but the reality is I have an adopted contract that I have to abide by,” he said.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas said that he has not heard a lot of complaint about the provision and, in the case of county employees working as election inspectors, they are only used if needed.

“I do not want to use the county employees out at sites where there are people who are lined up and willing to work,” Douglas said.

Douglas added that he was under a similar overtime provision when he was employed through the state correctional program.

“We had the same kind of policy there,” Douglas said. “If we took time off at the beginning of the week and then were called in for extra shifts, we would get the overtime.”
