On 22 January 2008 we had our 7th formal contract meeting with the City since we began negotiations this past August.
Both sides of the bargaining table have presented various proposals and discussions are moving forward. Thus far the major focus has been on health insurance related issues, discipline / intervention procedures and current contract verbiage. Economic issues such as salary increases and benefit packages have yet to be presented and discussed.
As of this last meeting no formal agreements have been reached. Several of our members have inquired as to when we might expect the contract to be formalized and presented to the membership. At this point due to economic issues and ensuring that our member’s contractual rights are preserved it would be premature for me to speculate on a completion date. It is our position, as well as the City’s that it is in the best interest of all parties to reach an agreement in an expeditious manner.
The next contract meeting with the City is scheduled for 29 January 08. We have also scheduled two meetings for February.
