Fire Union accuses city of unfair bargaining practices

Sacramento Fire has accused the City of unfair bargaining practices including alleged union domination, interference and surface bargaining bargaining, which includes failing to meet and confer in good faith. Said firefighter Chris Harvey:

“Sacramento firefighters have worked hard throughout these negotiations to protect public safety, only to be met with intimidation tactics by the city and more broken promises…The city’s rejection of the firefighters fair and reasonable deal supported by Councilmembers Lauren Hammond and Steve Cohn to take pay-cuts in return for no layoffs clearly shows that the city’s intent all along was to lay off firefighters.”

Labor talks with Fire ended Tuesday night; however, talks with Local 39 remain up in the air.
