County Refusing to Provide Benefits Agreed to in July
MARYSVILLE, Calif., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Homecare workers will announce at a press conference on Wednesday the filing of a formal complaint against Yuba County for refusing to implement portions of the caregivers' health plan, in violation of the contract that both sides agreed to three months ago.

Yuba County specifically agreed to this benefit when negotiating and ratifying the contract earlier this year.
