BILL NO. 19-510Ord.No:          19062

Agenda Title:

19-510 - 1R.  An ordinance authorizing an agreement with the Communications Workers of America, Local Union 6360, for the term of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2023; and declaring an emergency.
Recommendations:

Staff recommends approval of the ordinance authorizing an agreement with Communications Workers of America.

Executive Summary:

This ordinance implements recently negotiated changes to the work agreement with CWA and the City. This is a three-year agreement with the ability for wage re-openers each year. The first year represents a 1% wage increase, which is consistent with the wage increases negotiated for other collective bargaining units and non-represented employees for the current and prior fiscal years.
Emergency Justification:

The City Council has traditionally approved work agreements by an emergency ordinance in order to accelerate the retroactive wage increases for the employees.


Fiscal Impact:

The proposed wage increases are within budgeted amounts for the fiscal year.
