This evening our Negotiations Team reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) with the city. The team will be working Friday to prepare a packet that will be posted online ASAP, but no later than Tuesday.
Don’t forget Monday is the Juneteenth holiday. Please be thoughtful in your celebrations and enjoy the day.
I am as excited as any to know the details of our TA, and I assure you information will be shared as rapidly as possible. I remain confident that our team is bringing us the best contract possible and very likely our best yet.
Very briefly on the process going forward: a contract ratification vote will be held electronically; if approved by our membership, the contract will go to City Council for approval. If turned down, we face the options of returning to the table or going to a Fact Finder.
Watch your city email for a message from Survey Monkey via Susan Wilson to vote on the contract; most likely on Thursday or Friday. We are voting electronically and will be conducting the vote as soon as possible to get ahead of the City Council summer break, and to get your benefits and money to you quickly.
