AMEA Negotiations Update - Aug. 9, 2019

Dear AMEA General and Clerical Unit members,

Yesterday your AMEA Bargaining Team again met with negotiators for the City. This followed a meeting July 16 where we presented the City with a comprehensive counter-proposal. At yesterday’s negotiations session the City gave us a counter-proposal that made some movement in the right direction. However, the City’s proposal would still fail to result in what we think would be the fair and equitable agreement you and those who rely on you deserve. Yet despite the fact that the City continued to come up short, we have renewed confidence that we are making progress and that reaching an agreement is still achievable. Another negotiations session is scheduled for August 21, where we will present the City with a new proposal.

Thank you for your patience. This is a grueling process for all of us but we are committed not just to achieving a contract, but to achieving the best possible contract we can for you and your families.

In solidarity,

Your AMEA Bargaining Team
