AFSCME Local 858 Labor Picket

Monday, August 11, 2014

African American news from Pasadena - City workers treated unequally and picket


In 2006, AFSCME Local 858 (City of Pasadena employees) negotiated a four-year labor contract (July 1, 2006 – June 30, 2010) that included pay raises each year, the last of which was a 4 percent increase set for July 2009.

Right before the raise was due in 2009, the city contacted AFSCME and asked if the bargaining group members would consider deferring that increase until July 2010 – the city just needed one year's worth of relief.

In return, there would be no layoffs, furloughs, or reduction in hours for our union members. AFSCME members agreed to defer the increase until July 2010, in good faith. AFSCME's willingness saved the city $773,427 in Fiscal Year 2010.
