GOV, Eugene Moore embraces Stroger budget cuts

Cook County Recorder of Deeds Eugene Moore is going to meet the budget cutting target set by President of the County Board Todd Stroger.

See Daily Southtown (Jonathan Lipman) for Moore's plan.
Moore will eliminate 16 vacant positions, layoff 14 supervisors, reduce travel and office expenses by $250,000 and require all 223 remaining employees to take 10 unpaid furlough days.

SEIU Local 73 represents the unionized employees in the Recorder of Deeds office. SEIU claims that not only is it opposed to the furloughs which violate the contract, but no one informed SEIU of the proposal.
