• The union employees of the city of Marysville overwhelmingly rejected the latest contract offer from the city. The vote comes after nine months of negotiations and a meeting last week in which union negotiators reportedly would recommend to members that they approve the offer. City Administrator Dave Zabell spoke for the city's negotiating team when he said, "We are extremely disappointed." The rejection means city workers will enter their seventh month working without a contract. The rejected contract would have reportedly given workers a pay increase of more than 20 percent spread over four years. Employees voted 65-9 against the proposal. Public Works Shop Steward Doug Boyle, who is part of the employees' negotiating team, said workers spoke against the four-year deal; they were hoping for a 20 percent raise over three years. He said he didn't speak against the contract offer but that many in the audience did: "People were a bit upset."
