The union says the county hasn't demonstrated the need for layoffs under the collective bargaining agreement.
More than 200 social service workers could lose their jobs in less than two weeks.
The county says the layoffs are needed to offset a shortfall in state funding.
The county's projected layoffs are the largest since Orange County's bankruptcy in 1994.
