Reinstatement of Hours Survey for MEA-Represented Library Department Employees
MEA is in receipt of a letter from the Labor Relations Office indicating that the Mayor and City Council approved funds to restore five hours a week at branch libraries throughout the City starting this fiscal year. The FY 2012 mid-year budget adjustment includes a $237,000 adjustment to reinstate hours of operation from 36 hours a week to 41 hours which will allow the Department to fill a number of vacancies. In addition to the current vacancies being filled, it is estimated that an additional 22.8 FTE in limited hourly staff would need to be hired in order to staff the increased hours. This increase in funding to restore hours and staff is subject to change with the final adoption of the FY13 budget. The mayor will be rolling out his proposed budget this week.
Labor Relations provided MEA the department’s proposal which is outlined below. The target implementation date is the pay period of May 26, 2012. MEA has informed Labor Relations that we will be surveying our members to assess whether the majority of members agree with the department’s proposal.
