On behalf of all members of Laborers Local 860, and especially the union employees working without union support and protection at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center, we appreciate the following elected officials and other area leaders for their public support of our efforts to negotiate in good faith. (Read their letters of support below)

The court’s assault against its employee’s rights, especially the actions of Administrative Judge Thomas O’Malley and Court Administrator Tess Neff, has not only stripped the employees (our union Brothers and Sisters) of contractually secured rights and privileges, but has reduced efficiencies and put both employees and juveniles in their care at risk.

Senator Sherrod Brown

“All workers have the right to collectively bargain in good faith, including the courtside and detention workers employed by Cuyahoga County.”

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) Supporter

“Unions have built the American middle class and have made tremendous improvements to the quality of life of the American people.”

State Sen. Kenny Yuko (D-25th) Supporter

“While elected to different sides of the aisle, we are united in our belief that the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court must honor its agreements and, in good faith, negotiate changes to them.”

State Reps. Thomas F. Patton (R-7th) & Terrence Upchurch (D-10th) Supporter
