AFSCME Local 2432 Brothers and Sisters,
Toward the end of June, the City notified Local 2432 that it wanted to implement a one-year pilot program, to explore the possibility of achieving cost savings by changing employees’ workweek from 5 days, 8 hours per day, to 4 days, 10 hours per day.
Local 2432 held several meetings with the City to address concerns raised by our membership, including potential scheduling conflicts, and impacts upon work and meal breaks, holiday pay, vacation pay, sick pay, and upon employees’ child care arrangements. The proposed changes will not impact employees who are in one of the job classifications listed in the joint letter from the Union/HR that went out with last week’s paycheck. A link to the letter is below. We will post the contract language changes shortly.
If approved, Local 2432 will monitor this program with the City on an ongoing basis, in order to address and fix any issues that result from this change. Additionally, the City has agreed to incorporate some measures of flexibility to take into account the individual needs of, and personal circumstances facing our membership.
The vote to ratify all three AFSCME contracts passed overwhelmingly and is headed to the City Commission for a vote tomorrow (Wednesday, 4/6) @ 1PM at City Hall. Thanks to all who’ve worked hard during this process and to everyone who came out for the vote today.
Come by the Commission Chambers tomorrow @ 1PM in your AFSCME green as a show of solidarity if you can and thanks again to our members for your continued support.
The contract negotiations have finally been completed. A ratification vote will be held on next Tuesday April 5th 2016 from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM at the Union Hall – 2734 Hollywood Boulevard (parking in the rear). This is a secret ballot vote and the ballots will be counted immediately after the closing of the vote. All employees should receive their letter explaining their classification and wage changes based on the Evergreen implementation by this coming Friday April 1st 2016. Below is the bargained contract language changes; please review them prior to casting your vote on April 5th 2016:
