The City's negotiations follow a process and timeline prescribed by the City Charter, which results in contracts going before the Board of Supervisors for approval by May 15. Charter section A8.409 lays out the process for almost all non-safety employee groups, along with impasse procedures should the parties fail to reach agreement during negotiations. With few exceptions, in situations when the union and the City can't agree on a contract, the parties present their cases to a neutral third party whose decisions are binding on both parties. This process benefits the City, the unions, and the public by eliminating the disruptions caused by strikes.

As you are likely aware, the City processes a "split" payments to employees for the period that spans the end of one fiscal year and the beginning of the next one. This results in two payments to employees instead of the typical single biweekly payment. For the most recent fiscal year, the first half of this "split" pay period was paid to employees on July 15th and the second half will be paid on July 16th.
Employees who have established a fixed dollar value deduction from their paycheck to a credit union or other account have inadvertently had two deductions processed for this most recent split pay period, with one fixed dollar transfer processed in each of the two "split" payments.
This will not change an affected employees overall pay, only the account to which it has been credited. The change does not affect employees with a single direct deposit account, or those with non-fixed dollar value deductions.
Employees are encouraged to talk to their departmental payroll manager should they have questions about correction of this error. Each credit union is aware of the situation and is available to work with affected employees to transfer these funds to other accounts or otherwise resolve the misallocation of funds between an affected employee's accounts.
We apologize for this error, and are available to answer questions or to resolve issues as helpful.

On behalf of the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, thanks for all you do to support our City's beloved parks and recreation facilities. It's been a great year for parks. San Francisco voters overwhelmingly supported the Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond and the Trust for Public Land named San Francisco the number 1 urban park system in America. Our successes reflect the collective work of our dedicated staff, our elected officials, volunteers, community organizations and individuals who all see the value in having a world-class park system and who have played a role in supporting our efforts throughout the past year.
Local 261 has been instrumental in our successes this past year and we could not be more grateful for our valued partnership.
We invite you to view our report to the community for Fiscal Year 2011-12, which provides an overview of the great work our department has been doing during the past year. Read about what's happening in your parks, our recreation program highlights, and how we're working to keep your parks clean, safe and beautiful.
Wishing you every opportunity to get out and play this holiday season and throughout a happy and healthy 2013.
