Detention deputies give union the boot

Pasco County detention deputies voted 132-62 to decertify the bargaining unit that has been representing them in contract negotiations with Sheriff Bob White. In balloting Tuesday and Wednesday, the jail's sworn deputies overwhelmingly voted out the Fraternal Order of Police, less than two years after voting to unionize. The union had yet to finalize a labor contract. Although not at an official impasse with White, it had been stalled in contract talks over the right to appeal disciplinary action. That's the same issue keeping law enforcement deputies from finalizing their labor contract. The law enforcement units do not have decertification votes scheduled but are at an official impasse with the sheriff.
