Fresno County Superior Court officials said late Friday that courtrooms would be open Monday, though they anticipate “imminent professional action” from the union that represents correctional officers in the county.

Efforts to reach officials from the Fresno County Public Safety Association were unsuccessful.

A press release sent Friday by court spokeswoman Suzanne Olguin did not provide details of the professional action, but said it involved the Fresno County Public Safety Association, which represents officers.

The association has been calling for higher wages, more staff and better working conditions at the Fresno County Jail for several months.

“It is expected that all schedules will be heard as scheduled and jury service will be conducted without interruption,” Olguin said.

Updated information will be posted on the Court’s website, fresno.courts.ca.gov.
