Forces in Montgomery County are still trying to privatize 350 of our brothers and sisters jobs.
03/04/15 - UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO, AFL-CIO
This Friday, I'm giving testimony in front of the County Council against the plan to privatize the Dept. of Liquor Control. The Office of Legislative Oversight has released a report that endorses plans to privatize, but their report is flawed. They have decided on a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. And their plan will create huge problems for the whole county government... DLC is an enormous contributor to our budgets, generating $30-40 million in funds for the general government. So not only does this move to privatize threaten the DLC's workforce, it could have an impact on many of your jobs.
