Members Of Teamsters Local 110 Vote To Decertify In Jefferson County

BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) — The Jefferson County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to decertify a union that represents certain county employees.

Commissioners Jack Matson, Jeff Pisarcik and Herb Bullers voted to decertify the Teamsters Local 110, which represented non-professional county residual employees.

That includes about 18 people who work for in the county Emergency Services in 911, Treasurer’s department, maintenance, assessment (clerk), development (clerk) and Veteran’s Affairs.

When asked why it had been done, Matson said the union voted to decertify itself.

One former union member, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed that union members had voted for decertification.

The union had existed for about 12 years.

Also, according to Brad Lashinsky, director of the Jefferson County Development Council, the state Department of Community Economic Development is reviewing the county’s grant application for the Days Inn property.

“We are just waiting to hear if they approve it,” Lashinsky said. “The plans will move forward to develop the property if we don’t.”

The JCDC does not own the title to the property yet, but Lashinsky said it is expected to happen soon.

The next county commissioners meeting is set for Wednesday, March 29. It was moved because the commissioners will be attending the County Commissioners Association of Pa. spring conference in Harrisburg March 26-28.

The jail and salary boards will also meet that day.
