State employees picket Governor’s Holiday Party

December 16th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

About 50 members of the largest union of state employees picketed the governor's mansion during a holiday party Thursday, demanding a fix to a payroll glitch they say has left scores of workers without full paychecks just before holidays. State officials dispute the scope of the problem, but said Thursday they issued more than $81,000 worth of paper checks to 115 corrections workers last month because of payroll problems. Union officials with AFSCME Maryland say the Hogan administration is not counting the hundreds of workers who have not filed a formal complaint and are instead waiting for the problem to be resolved. It stems from a switch to a new, uniform payroll system the state has adopted in stages this year.
