Following trends set from Wisconsin to Riverside County, the City of Palm Springs’ management seems to be more concerned with paying lip service to “pension reform” than to the needs of the hard working families of their city. Once again, this unfortunate political triangulation strategy was on display at our most recent bargaining session, which took place on May 7.
We have made it very clear to management that the city council needs to seriously consider our proposals if they want us to consider theirs. By pushing forward only their so-called ‘pension reform’ and not considering the sacrifices members have made for all these years, the city is disrespecting its workers and the collective bargaining process.
– Mark Reid, SEIU 721 City of Palm Springs chief negotiator
A general meeting will be scheduled in the near future. Watch this space for more details.
The next bargaining date is set for May 22, 2012.
