FREMONT — A dispute between two labor organizations vying to represent more than 25 percent of the city’s employees has turned bitter and seemingly endless, with both sides accusing each other of misconduct as the case awaits a decision from state officials.

On one side is the Fremont Association of City Employees (FACE), while the other is the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1021 — and each says it alone has the authority to represent 227 city workers in contract talks.

That wide-ranging group of employees — the city’s largest among its 833 workers — includes planners, home inspectors, park rangers, social workers, police administrative workers and more.
