Engineer violated injunction, Butler says

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HAMILTON — The Butler County commissioners asked a judge Wednesday to cite County Engineer Dean Foster for contempt of court.

        In a motion filed with Common Pleas Judge Keith Spaeth, the commissioners accused Mr. Foster of violating the judge's preliminary injunction that prohibits him from enacting a new union contract with 50 employees.

        Three days after Judge Spaeth issued his preliminary injunction, Mr. Foster filed four motions with the State Employee Relations Board asking for approval of the contract, the commissioners said.

        The commissioners are fighting an employees contract recently negotiated by Mr. Foster with the Teamsters Local 100. The commissioners say the contract contains exorbitant benefits and requires their direct approval.
