Beverly Hills taxpayers may well be footing an 11 percent raise for City employees as a result of offers that went out this week to all five non-safety associations. However, according to City Attorney Larry Weiner, the earliest the public will become aware of the details and have a chance to speak up will be Aug. 12.
“There are offers out,” he confirmed. “There are discussions that are going on. We have heard back from some of these associations.”
Robin Nahin, director at City Employees Associates, told The Courier that the Beverly Hills Confidential and Supervisors Associations planned to drop its July 7 Public Employment Relations Board complaint as a result of the offer.
“The City made an offer to clients that is acceptable,” she said.
The two associations lodged a complaint alleging that the City of Beverly Hills had violated fair negotiation practices after the City Council voted 3-2 to reject the employees agreements on June 24. Previously, the Council voted 4-1 to accept the agreement on May 20.
