The contract dispute between Jefferson County and some of its Sheriff's Department employees is growing more heated.


The union representing jail corrections officers and county dispatchers is looking for a change in rates on health insurance. The battle has left those workers without a contract since 2014.

Earlier in the week, Legislature Chair Scott Gray told 7 News that the next time the two sides meet, the county will only discuss retro pay for 2016, no longer will 2015 be on the table if a new deal is struck.
