SEIU Local 1000 president Yvonne Walker has sent an e-mail to members that says, in part, "Our attorneys say it is illegal for the governor or the Legislature to unilaterally cut wages, and we will file legal papers to block this action that the governor says he will propose to the Legislature."
The statement also asserts that the state can save big money fromcanceling personal services contracts, although it doesn't say how many more state workers would need to be employed to cover the work now handled through those contracts.
