    Macomb County Public Defenders unionize

    August 29, 2023 // Commissioner Joe Sabatini, a Macomb Township Republican, expressed concern about the spreading of unionization in county government, although 80% of county employees are already unionized. Karlyn Semlow, director of Human Resources and Labor Relations, said “pockets” of the county workforce are non-union. “I”d like to see whether this is going to or can set precedence with those other pockets that would then try to unionize as well,” said Sabatini, who is chair of the Finance, Audit and Budget Committee.
