DC 47 Negotiations Update

DC 47 Negotiations Update

Our negotiating team met with representatives from the City during the last week in December, 2017, to discuss pension concerns. The City is going back to research and respond to another question we posed about pensions. We have set three different dates to meet again – January 8, 16 and 22.

We are also involved in negotiations with the American Friends Service Committee. The main issues with them are economic. The AFSC said they do not have money to cover pay increases. DC 47 has requested to look at their financial records. So far, they have not given us access to them. We are scheduled to meet with them again on January 11 and 12.

Happy New Year and we will continue to struggle in 2018.

Fred Wright
Pres. DC 47

DC 47 City Negotiation Update

DC 47 City Negotiation Update

On Tuesday of this week, we presented the City of Philadelphia a response to their proposal to the Union concerning the pension plan. We have another negotiation meeting scheduled with the City on December 29th. We will be available for negotiations throughout the holidays. We continue to work to resolve our pension differences with the City.
In addition, our Health & Welfare subcommittee has been meeting and making some progress.
I believe that our economic package concerns probably will not be resolved until some agreement is reached regarding pensions.
Also, the City has changed lawyers and asked for a contract extension until February 15th.
