WAYNESBORO, Miss. (AP) — The job status of more than 50 city workers in Mississippi remains up in the air as the mayor and aldermen clash over rehiring.

WDAM-TV reports that Waynesboro Mayor Richard Johnson and the Board of Aldermen are scheduled to meet on the topic Friday afternoon at a special meeting. A majority of the board wants all of the around 60 employees rehired with a single vote, whereas Johnson wants each employee to be individually considered.

If the two parties cannot reach an agreement by midnight on Dec. 31, the employees could be out of a job.

The board had voted to rehire all employees earlier this month, but Johnson vetoed the decision. The board failed to override.
