Dear Brother and Sisters of Local AFSCME 2432,
I hope you and your loved ones are doing well during these challenging times. The Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA’s) contracts expire on September 30, 2020. Prior to the pandemic outbreak, we had one (1) negotiation session. In Florida all negotiations must be done in the public, however due to COVID that was not possible. I reached out to the city to roll the contract over for 1 year with a 2% increase, but the City declined our offer.
A negotiation session was scheduled on September 29, 2020 and posted to comply with the public requirements. Today, we have reached an agreement with the City for a one (1) year Memorandun of Understanding, for 2% raise effective the first full pay period after September 30, 2020.
A Ratification vote will be held on Tuesday October 6th at the Union Hall from 7:30am to 4:30pm. All employees are eligible to vote with proper I.D.
Please observe social distancing instructions and you MUST wear a mask while at Union Hall.
Union Hall – 2734 Hollywood Boulevard Hollywood FL 33020
Voting to take place on Tuesday October 6th, 7:30am – 4:30pm.
Your Union President,
Hollywood AFSCME Local 2432 has been working with the City to address concerns and guide its members regarding safety in the workplace due to COVID-19. Some of these concerns have been related to telecommuting to accommodate greater physical distancing in the workplace.
On July 7, 2020, Local 2432 representatives had a phone meeting with the City Manager to discuss our concerns regarding the status of the existing protocol for telecommuting and any possible updates to it due to the apparent increase in the spread of the COVID-19 in the South Florida area.
Per the meeting discussion, requests for telecommuting are still being accepted. AFSCME agreed to help get the word out to its members that employees who would like to telecommute, whether they telecommuted or were previously denied, may re-apply in writing for the City Manager’s approval. The City Manager advised that granting the requests will be made on a case-by-case basis.
AFSCME Local 2432
President Christopher Cassidy has requested a meeting with the City to discuss your concerns and get these issues addressed. Please see the attached letter to the City.
Brothers and sisters of Local 2432,
Yesterday an all employee email was sent out offering a day off plus a $25.00 gift card to participate in an antibody testing program. The Union leadership was not notified or involved in the development of this program. The Union is now reviewing the City’s offer for free antibody testing for employees.
The Union has many concerns.
We are asking that you please hold off on signing up for this program. The Union attorney has drafted a letter (below) outlining our concerns and are waiting for a response from the City. We will keep you posted.
AFSCME Local 2432
