Mark choosing the city representatives who will regularly meet and confer with the city's labor organizations off the Mayor's to do list. Filner officially took the lead on negotiating the wages, hours, and working conditions for the 2014 fiscal year that starts next July 1st.
The mayor was approved with his negotiating team at Monday's city council meeting. His council affairs director will take part in the negotiations as a team member.
Human resources staff and the heads of the fire department and the police department joined the team that will work with the city council to decide on the work rewards city employee will depend on, without leaving any employee who makes a cost efficient and honest employment request empty handed.
Representatives have a duty to engage in good faith negotiations to formally agree on the pay and health benefits guarantee to workers who take a job with the city and join a labor union, such as MEA Local 127. Mayor Filner said at his Tuesday State of the City Address the deficit budget control days the cost cutting bucks stopped on the labor organization desk are over. All the position and pay cuts that can balance the budget have been made.
Labor organizations representatives request the negotiation sessions. The city's tea has an obligation to continue the negotiations for a reasonable time. But, they can, if necessary, stop short of an agreement.
The representatives were named to the public at the meeting.
At closed sessions, Independent Budget Analyst Andrea Tevlin and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, accompanied by deputies, will join the team of representatives. Agreements made between the representatives and the labor organization must save enough money for the year and survive the test of the City Attorney's judgment on legality for the door to the city council who approves the memorandums of understanding to stay open.
