Stockton police union sues city over unused pay

STOCKTON, CA (AP) - The union that represents Stockton police officers is suing the city of Stockton over sick days and vacation time.

The Police Officers' Union on Wednesday asked a San Joaquin County judge to order the city to continue paying for unused sick and vacation time to officers leaving their jobs.

A city attorney told Superior Court Judge Lesley Holland that such a ruling could send the city into bankruptcy before recently approved mediation has begun.

Holland ordered the parties back in court on April 13.

Last month, the City Council vote to suspend $2 million in bond payments and begin negotiations with bond holders and creditors in an attempt to keep Stockton from becoming the largest city in the United States to file for bankruptcy protection.

The city currently has a $15 million deficit and one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation.

Stockton homeless camps broken up

STOCKTON, CA - Every couple of years it happens, and it happened again Thursday morning.

Homeless people living on state property along Interstate 5 in Stockton have been told to pack up and leave.

A homeless advocate, watching the latest operation, said it wouldn't accomplish much.

"Chasing them around from place to place isn't solving the problem. We need to find a solution," Occupy Stockton protester Richard Blackston said.

Blackston said his group favors setting aside property for Stockton's homeless population so they can govern themselves, as long as there are sanitation facilities provided. He said there are people in Stockton, with the money and willingness, able to make it happen.

"We actually have different people in this community, very well known, who've said we're with you. They're working with us behind the scenes," Blackston said.
