BH Public Works employees having hours cut

More than a dozen employees in Benton Harbor's Public Works and Water Utility Departments will soon have their hours cut.

That's according to our reporting partner, The Herald Palladium.

A representative for the local branch of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Union says the union is not happy with the furlough days, but members know it's necessary to avoid layoffs.

Employees who were working 40 hours per week will now instead work 32 and those working 37.5, will instead work 30. The hours will be cut back starting next year.
