MEA’s Letter Regarding Substantive and Legal Problems with the City’s Budget in PD
Many of you have requested a copy of the letter we sent to the City last week and referenced in our earlier e-mail which provided an update on the status of our meet and confer negotiations. Please click on the following link (Letter to City) to read the letter that went to the Mayor, City Attorney and Independent Budget Analyst. Our understanding is that the Mayor and City Council are discussing this issue in closed session today.
At this point, we continue to wait for the City’s response to the letter as well as several outstanding information requests given to them at the bargaining table. We expect another meet and confer session to be scheduled soon, but don’t expect any substantive news to be immediately forthcoming. As soon as there is more to report, we will host another meeting at MEA to give a more detailed update and/or seek feedback on decisions that might need to be made. In the meantime, do not hesitate to call your MEA representatives (619-264-6632) for more information or to get specific questions answered.
