News and Notes from the President of AFSCME Local 2432

PERC – Bargaining Units

The Florida Public Employee Relations Commission (PERC), based upon the Florida Constitution and state laws, determines which city jobs are to be included with the General, Professional or Supervisory Units, and which must be excluded.

Last year, we filed a petition with PERC to have our units recertified, and to get clarification as to which jobs should be included within our bargaining units. Based upon this process, it became clear that over the years the City had improperly slotted several job classifications outside of our bargaining units into Managerial or Confidential positions.

We have a final hearing on May 1st, and then PERC will issue its final orders listing all bargaining unit positions, and all excluded Managerial or Confidential positions.

Once this PERC recertification process has been completed, and since we have already started contract negotiations with the City, we will also bargain hard for these additional employees.

Stay tuned.

Possible End to 4 Day Work Week

Brothers and Sisters of Local 2432,

Please see the below survey link about neighborhood priorities. Anyone that is in Hollywood can take this survey……. from what I hear is that a few Commissioners want the employees to go back to a 5 day 8 hour work week. Have friends, family or anyone you know complete this survey as it is good for Hollywood as a whole. If they enjoy the enhanced services by having City Hall open till 6…….. As Friday it is closed… please let them know. This also is a great conduit for any other issues of concern.
