Bargaining the 2024 contract
Updated On: Feb 23, 2024

Our current contract expires June 30, 2024. Bargaining is set to start on February 21, 2024. It will be an all-day session. We will post updates here after each session, with the most recent information at the top.

Remember to wear your green AFSCME shirts every Thursday!

February 21, 2024 Update

Our first bargaining session can be described in one word - slow. The City spent 3 hours working on ground rules for bargaining before finally accepting our proposal.

In addition, to the ground rules they agreed to our proposal for Article 8 which officially adds Juneteenth to our list of paid holidays. They also accepted our proposal to add language that we would automatically be paid for any holiday adopted by City Council.

We made three additional proposals essentially clarifying current practices and adjusting contract language to align with current state law. The City did not offer counters to any of those articles.

Bargaining is scheduled for every other Wednesday, so we will be back at the table with more proposals on March 6.
