Union workers trimmed from Calabasas Country Club groundskeeping staff

Work to be subcontracted

LOUD AND CLEAR—Workers stage a demonstration in Calabasas to protest the country club’s recent decision to lay off 17 union employees.
Seventeen union workers employed at the Calabasas Country Club and Golf Course have been replaced by a new, nonunion crew from ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance.
Critics of the move worry that the change is the beginning of a new trend in the golfing industry to move away from organized labor in favor of independent subcontractors who work for less.
