California Court Favors Elimination of Two Holidays

The Schwarzenegger administration won in a suit filed against them by the state attorney’s union. The suit was prompted by the administration’s move to remove February 12 (Lincoln’s birthday) and the second Monday of October (Columbus Day) as paid days off.

Rachel Arrezola, Schwarzenegger spokeswoman, told reporters that the administration totally agree with the court’s ruling. She added that today’s economy dictates cut backs both from the state government and private sectors.

The state union representing more than 2,000 workers claimed that such move violates their contract. By eliminating the two holidays, the terms even under an expired contract was still violated. This was because the law says that the terms remain in full force and effect until a new deal is entered into.

The battle is not over yet. The union may still appeal the decision.
