Members Vote on the Managed Competition Ratification Guide
Thank you very much to those of you who took time from your busy day on September 21st 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, with 96% of you voting “yes” to ratify the tentative agreement recommended by your negotiating team. We greatly value your participation as well as the feedback we received on the day of the vote.
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 September 27, the City Council also gave its final approval of the guide on a 6-1 vote.
