**Updated** Ratification Vote for increase in Flexibal Spending Account (FSA) – Tuesday, Dec. 22nd

The Union and City have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding to increase the City’s Flexible Spending Account (FSA) contribution to the following:

$300.00 – Employee only

$400.00 – Employee +1

$700.00 – Employee + 2 or more

Changes to the FSA accounts must be made by the end of each calendar year or else cannot be changed per IRS rules.  The  M.O.U  allows the increase to take effect in January  2016 pending a ratification vote by the membership and approval by the City Commission.  This vote is only for the increased FSA benefit.  Full contract negotiations are ongoing.

The M.O.U. requires an in person Ballot Vote from AFSCME covered employees to approve. Voting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 22nd from 7:00 am through 7:00 pm (updated times from previous notice) with ballot counting to begin immediately afterwards.  Voting will take place at the Union Hall located at 2734 Hollywood Boulevard  – parking located in the rear.
