Tenative deal for 3rd Phila. city union
PHILADELPHIA - August 14, 2008 The deal announced Thursday leaves only the firefighters without an agreement; that union enters into arbitration Monday. The latest agreement is with District Council 47 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents about 3,300 white-collar workers. Earlier agreements were reached with a district council representing about 10,000 blue-collar workers and the police union. Mayor Michael Nutter says the biggest development is that the three unions have agreed to participate in a labor-management committee to evaluate health care. He says he's hopeful that the firefighters' union will participate in the committee as well.
