Managed Competition Ratification Update
Thank you very much to those of you who took time from your day last Tuesday to vote on the Managed Competition Guide Ratification. Nearly 600 MEA members came to the Silver Room downtown or MEA’s offices in Kearny Mesa to vote. 96% of you voted “yes” to ratify the tentative agreement recommended by your negotiating team.
The agreed upon guide represents more than three years of tough negotiations (and successful litigation) over rules that will govern the implementation of the managed competition ballot measure passed by San Diego voters in 2006. While we do not support managed competition, we do believe that this guide represents our best shot at a level playing field and a fair competition. On Monday, the City Council also gave its final approval of the guide on a 6-1 vote.
