Contract Negotiations Meeting

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Yellowstone County commissioners and sheriff's deputies will meet in two weeks to iron out the contract negotiations.

A California fact finder will be in Billings November 20th to make a recommendation for both parties. Commissioner Jim Reno said it's the first time an out-of-state mediator has been called in to resolve negotiations. At this time, deputies and commissioners cannot agree on comp time. Reno said the California mediator's recommendation is non-binding and the decision does not have a deadline.

If commissioners disagree with the mediator's decision, commissioners will write up a contract, regardless of the dispute.
