City and DC 47 Contract Negotiations Update

City and DC 47 Contract Negotiations Update

Brothers and Sisters,

Negotiations between the City and District Council 47 are continuing.
On Tuesday of last week, DC 47 VP Ethelind Baylor and myself met with Mayor Jim Kenney.
We talked to him about the lack of movement to resolve the differences between DC 47’s position and that of the City. We expressed our concerns about the frustration brothers and sisters have expressed about this slow moving process. We told the Mayor that we believe he should get more involved in the negotiation process.
We met with the City again this week on Wednesday. We have another meeting scheduled next week.
