Most of you are aware that Local 2432 represents Three different Bargaining Units; General, Professional, and Supervisory. And if for whatever reason you didn’t know that, now you do.
It’s Contract Time and all three Units are at the bargaining table beginning this week. Technically Supervisory was there already as they have negotiated since last October, but this is the week it is all supposed to go from being tick marks in a calendar or email and switch to actual real negotiations.
I am sure you’ve listened to the news about the PBA and IAFF contract negotiations, and if for whatever reason you haven’t they can best be summed up as “in progress.”
Many of you have asked where we stand in this process and the answer is, for the moment, “in progress.”
As of today here is what’s what regarding our contracts:
Meetings to finalize the Supervisory Contract are scheduled. More news here and from your Stewards as it is available.
The City has *not* scheduled meetings to begin negotiations with General or Professional units. Anything you hear from management or the media about how well things are going is just a put-off. Nothing is going yet, well or otherwise.
We will keep you up to date as more information becomes available.
In the past our Local hasn’t been so good with the communications to it member’s…. we admit it and we are working on improving it. One of the many ways we are improving our communications is this website. Another is our updated Facebook Page. Check it out
