Creating Section 3.53(25) of the Madison General Ordinances establishing a Grievance and Arbitration Procedure for general municipal employees.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: Discussion on these ordinances as well as the employee handbook began in June of 2012. General municipal employees will have their current collective bargaining agreements end on December 31, 2014 to be replaced by the handbook and the Committee on Employee Relations. Representatives of City management, along with the Mayor’s office and Human Resources worked to develop the handbook and committee structure. Employee representatives have been active and engaged in this process and have provided continuous input and commentary over the course of several meetings. While not labor agreements, the goal of all involved is to give employees continued input into the conditions of their employment with the City of Madison. Additional ordinances will be drafted for introduction at the July council meeting.
