AIR DATE: March 4, 2010

Union heads talk about the city's budget plan that could eliminate more than 200 jobs and see the firing of 171 full time employees. The unions have yet to agree to reopen their contract and Mayor Oscar Goodman says if they don't, there's no other choice but to see people laid off. We ask them if they will agree to reopen those contracts and if cuts and layoffs will impact their departments at all.

Guests:
Chris Collins, Executive Dir, Las Vegas Police Protective Association.
Don King, Pres, Las Vegas City Employees Association.
