According to Chris Toole, of Teamsters Local 118 — based out of Rochester — one group of local law enforcement officers are desperate for parity.
This week, Toole sat down in-studio to discuss ongoing negotiations between the deputies of Wayne County and County Government — who he says walked away from the table recently.
While additional meetings are set to take place — Toole isn’t terribly confident that a resolution will be found in the short-term. He even called the prospect of talks being delayed further a ‘massive failure’ for county government.
