For months, our elected bargaining teams have negotiated with City officials around the clock to secure a strong new contract that reflects our priorities: competitive wages, solving the understaffing crisis, defending and expanding healthcare, protecting our secure retirement, and winning an even stronger union voice on the job.

Unfortunately, our demands have been met with silence.

Even worse, the City has engaged in repeated labor law violations throughout the bargaining process – refusing to provide information needed for bargaining, surveilling members as they engage in union activity, limiting union access to our worksites, and pressuring members not to take part in our historic 1-day strike in August.

As a result, we’ve filed numerous Unfair Labor Practice charges against City management. Our original charges are still unresolved and heading to hearing. Now, we’re ready to take it to the next level.

Together, we’re taking a strike authorization vote to send a clear message to city officials: We’re ready to walk off the job to sound the alarm on the City’s rampant law breaking and failure to negotiate in good faith.

Your Bargaining Teams strongly recommend a YES vote.
