The City and Joint Labor have been meeting on a weekly basis to negotiate the entire Joint Labor Agreement. Health care benefits continue to be the primary issue, although the employer is bringing many language items to modify the entire agreement. 

Our interest is protecting the integrity of the current health care plans and the other benefits as outlined in the Joint Labor agreement, such as longevity pay and vacation time.

We thank you for your patience, perseverance and solidarity as we continue to fight on your behalf.
