City of Custer Employees Unionize

Employees of the city of Custer's Public Works Department will be unionized after a collective bargaining agreement was struck with city officials, reports the Custer County Chronicle

The new unionized employees won't experience dramatic changes in work hours or pay, the Custer mayor said. Most changes would come in strengthening employee rights in terms of discipline and firing along with the accrual of sick time and vacation pay. 

Not all employees of the city's public works department belong to the union, which requires members to pay dues.
