“Fallbrook Union High School District is engaging in shameful treatment of its employees. After telling employees in May that layoffs would be avoided if seven members took a retirement incentive, members of management changed their story. They now propose cuts to 11 positions, many of which deal with the most vulnerable students. Members of management bargained unfairly with our members, and we will be coming to tell them so at the next board meeting on June 24.”
– David Garcias, President, SEIU 221
