Congratulations to the bargaining committee of Joel Hoffmeyer, Jordan Risley, Jason Moore and Jason Clift for persevering under trying conditions, in spite of a most difficult and less than transparent City Manager. The bargaining process stalled and eventually, Labor Council Attorney Gary Bailey made our winning case at arbitration before Arbitrator Benn. Arbitrator Benn awarded on behalf of the Union, however, the City Manager continued in his attempt to manipulate the implementation of the award. A recent change in City Manager brought a successful end to the process.
