City of Santa Fe, union may be near settlement on contract workers

The city of Santa Fe and the local chapter of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees are on a path to striking a settlement deal in their latest dispute.

Representatives from both parties met for a settlement conference Tuesday in AFSCME Local 3999ís complaint to the state Public Employees Labor Relations Board over a city contract with an outside firms to provide on-call weed removal services. The union brought the complaint in October.

The union contends that under language in its contract, the city should have reached out to the union and attempted to hire people to fill vacant union positions for the work before seeking the outside contract. The city says it has hired contract workers for a decade, and the case was the first time the union took issue with the strategy.

While terms of an agreement are still being ironed out, a draft shows the city would follow the union contract by notifying the union at least 30 days prior to the use of services under a work contract.
