Are S.S.B. employees planning a sickout?

Word to News Five is that employees of Social Security across the country are planning a sickout on Monday. According to the report, workers are up in arms because they have been unable to reach agreement on a number of issues that include salary increases, sick leave and health insurance. The negotiations apparently go back to 2007 between the Social Security and the Christian Workers Union on behalf of the employees, but have not yet been concluded. As we said, we were unable to get any information on whether or not the employees will indeed call in sick and disrupt services on one of the busiest days for Social Security.
