The labor agreement with the Laborers Union Local 121, who represent most of our public works employees expires June 30, 2005. We have reached tentative agreement on the terms of a successor contract.
The City has 5 separate collective bargaining groups plus its unrepresented employee group. Three of the five contracts are up for renewal this year. The City and the Laborer's Union have been meeting since the end of February to try and negotiate a successor contract.
