- Negotiations leading to a master Labor Agreement between the City and DCTU that concluded in December 2004 referred certain classification specific matters to "small team negotiations." One of the "small team negotiations" addressed certain terms and conditions for employees in the classifications of Storekeeper/Acquisitions Specialist I, Storekeeper/Acquisitions Specialist II and Storekeeper/Acquisitions Specialist II-Auto Parts Specialist. These negotiations also addressed the classification of Storekeeper/Acquisitions Specialist III. However, the ordinance adopted by Council regarding this tentative agreement on November 24, 2004 (Ordinance No. 178903) referenced the Storekeeper/Acquisition III only by an addendum. This ordinance clarifies that the ratification by Council of the tentative agreement referenced below is intended to include terms for the classification of Storekeeper/Acquisition Specialist III.
- A tentative agreement between the parties was obtained on October 15, 2004. DCTU confirmed that it had ratified the tentative agreement in a written communication dated October 22, 2004. This tentative agreement included terms for the classification of Storekeeper/Acquisition Specialist III.
- The agreement resolves an ongoing dispute between the parties.
- The terms and conditions shall be reduced to a Memorandum of Agreement, which the Mayor should be authorized to execute.
