Mayor Signs Union Contract
August 20, 2012
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Today, Mayor Richard J. Berry announces that his administration had reached an agreement with the Management Union, Local 3022, bargaining units. The M-Series is a local union under AFSCME which includes supervisors, planners, and accountants. The Berry Administration and Union Representatives gathered today to officially sign the new contract.
"The Union recognizes the economic and financial difficulties facing the City of Albuquerque, and negotiated their terms accordingly,” said Mayor Berry. “This is a great example of the city administration working well with local union leaders who at the end of the day all want what’s best for the taxpayers."
The negotiations resulted in several additions to the agreement; no unpaid days for union members, union representatives will conduct business on time donated by union members, and a modest adjustment to longevity pay incentives.
