Today the OC Board of Supes. voted 5-0 to establish an Office of Independent Review to establish oversight of deputies and non-sworn officers ot the OC Sheriff,s Department.
In the agenda item, staff indicated that the county would meet and confer with employee epresentation groups, including the Orange County Employee’s Association (OCEAY)regarding the impact and implementation of the OIR.
Yet, the county suddenly notified OCEA on February 4th that they have decided that they are not requied to meet and confer and therefore they will not. As OCEA General Manager Nick Berardino pointed out at the meeting, this is a classic bait and switch by the county and in particular under the leadership, or lack therof, of Supervisor Moorlach.
This has unfortunately become a pattern and practice of county administrators and Chairman Moorlach. In their usualy stupidity, these morons are simply inviting more litigation and unneeded costs to the tax payers.
As I said in the title of this post… EFFING LIARS!
