The majority of Guadalupe's unionized city employees called in sick on Tuesday after failing to reach an agreement with the city on a memorandum of understanding.
According to the city, most operations at Guadalupe City Hall came to a halt yesterday due to the lack of workers. Police and fire departments functioned normally, as employees of both departments are not part of the union, Local 620.
Approximately 14 people are represented in Local 620. Negotiations between the city and union employees began three months ago, after the previous MOU expired on December 31, 2010. Furloughs and salary proposals are two major points of contention.
Union employees returned to work Wednesday, and city operations are functioning normally.
