City & Union Reach Deal

...but everyone isn't happy (NY1 Article).

City Reaches Deal With Unions Representing 10,000 Workers

JULY 13TH, 2004

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced an agreement Monday night to give raises to municipal unions representing nearly 10,000 workers.

The deal still hasn't silenced three of the city's most vocal and powerful unions, those for police, firefighters and teachers.

Those unions have vowed to rally outside Madison Square Garden at next month's Republican National Convention, as well as before it.

The groups plan to begin an around-the-clock demonstration next Monday to coincide with the start of Convention preparations.

The municipal agreements reached Monday night contain raises based on productivity similar to the ones agreed to by DC-37, the city's largest union.

The mayor also ordered raises for $15,000 managers and non-represented employees.

The agreement calls for a reduction in starting salaries and modifications to the time and leave provisions for anyone hired after July 1st of this year.
