Bulletin 56– 21

MEMBER ALERT 

Dear Members,

Today the Employee Relations Board decided that UFLAC and the City are at impasse and ordered the parties to participate in impasse procedures.  The first step is for the parties to meet with a mediator.  We are in the process of selecting a mediator and scheduling the mediation.

UFLAC’s unfair practice claim against the City regarding its unlawful unilateral implementation of new terms and conditions of bargaining related to the vaccine mandate has been scheduled for hearing in February 2022.

Moving Forward:

On behalf of the bargaining unit, UFLAC has challenged the City’s unlawful conduct in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, filing lawsuits, filing unfair practice claims, bargaining, requesting information, educating the public through media and speaking at City Council meetings.  UFLAC will continue to fight to protect the rights afforded to our bargaining unit.  We will continue to explore all options available and we will keep you informed.

In Solidarity,

UFLAC Executive Board
