Nominations and Elections

Nominations for the following Officer positions will take place at a Special Meeting on November 14th @ 6:30 PM.  Nominations will close promptly at 8PM.    Elections will be held on December 5th (see flyer below).  Any member with more than 1 year of active membership is eligible to be nominated.   Member election notices have been sent in the mail.

Executive Board

The Executive Board has received and accepted the resignation of Vice-President Troy Porter. Troy has served and helped the members of our Union for many years and his service has been greatly appreciated.  He requested to step down due to personal matters and we wish him the best and continue to support him as a Union brother.

Per the Union constitution, the Board Secretary succeeds the Vice President if the position is vacated.  At yesterday’s Executive Board meeting, the Board secretary, Laura Cummins, was offered the interim VP position, but declined.  There is no other position explicitly indicated as next in succession per the union constitution.  Therefore, the Executive Board must appoint someone to the position of Vice President until nominations/election for the position occur.

President Christopher Cassidy passed the gavel, then made a motion to appoint Barbara Armand as Interim Vice-President to serve the remainder of the term which expires this December. The motion was seconded and the Board voted to appoint Barbara as Interim Vice-President.  Barbara Armand accepted the appointment.

This created a vacancy in the Professional E-Board position.  The Union constitution states that  General, Professional, and Supervisory Executive Board positions that are vacated are appointed by the Executive Board.  Barbara Armand motioned to appoint Glen Superville as the Interim Professional representative to serve the remainder of the term which expires this December.  Glenhas been a loyal Union Member since his initial employment in 1999 and is well respected by his peers.  The motion was seconded and the board voted to appoint Glen to the position which he accepted.

Ratification Vote – MOU’s (Health Insurance)

Local 2432 Brothers and Sisters,

There will be a ratification vote held on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 between 7AM – 7PM at the Union Hall – 2734 Hollywood Boulevard (parking in the rear). All employees in AFSCME covered positions are eligible to vote. Below are highlights from Memoranda of Understanding that were negotiated with the City regarding health insurance changes that will affect all three of our bargaining units.

1. Additional Cigna Health Insurance “In-Network Only” Plan Option

Extensive negotiations were conducted with the City over its interest in reducing healthcare costs. After much discussion and meetings with the City’s health insurance consultants, a third plan was crafted that provided for lower City costs, as well as lower employee up front costs, with an in-network only plan.

Through this plan, if elected, employees electing single coverage (no covered dependents) will have 100% of their premium paid by the City, and if any dependents are added, then the City will pay 90% of the premium, with the employee responsible for payment of the other 10% of the premiums.

Employee co-pays under the alternative “In-Network Only” plan are $30 for primary care visits, $40 for specialist care visits, and $75 for urgent care visits.

2. Flexible Spending Accounts (“FSA”) and Health Reimbursement Accounts (“HRA”)
