The First session of City negotiations took place this afternoon at LiUNA!, Local 261. In attendance for the Union were Theresa Foglio, Sean Healy, Adrian Rojo, Norflis McCullough, Alex Alvarez, Theresa O'Brien, Steve Elder, Anthony Travis, Bruce Ricci, & Zac Salem. The City team was administered by Ileana Samanc, and all Departments were present.
The Parties agreed conceptually on groundrules for bargaining sessions, as well as a proposal cutoff date of March 9, 2012. The entire bargaining team will be invited to a budget proposal discussion in the near future. The Union objected to the May 7th arbitration date.
