CMCEA Negotiations Update: Sept. 6, 2022

Dear CMCEA member,

Since our last update, we’ve received three proposals from the City and have tentatively agreed on a number of small-ticket items. On Tuesday, we met the City’s team and had a lengthy discussion about our top three priorities: wages, retirement, and health insurance. Your negotiations team is working diligently to bring you an offer that will help address the economic realities you and your families are facing and that recognizes you for your contributions to the City.

The City’s chief negotiator will be meeting with the City Council in closed session on Tuesday, Sept. 6; he will be seeking guidance on how to respond to our last proposal. We are scheduled to reconvene with their team on Thursday, Sept. 8 and remain hopeful their response will keep us moving in the right direction.

Keep an eye out for more updates after our next meeting.

In solidarity,

Your CMCEA Negotiations Team
