Union presses for contract

DC 37 Executive Director Lillian Roberts addresses city negotiators March 30 at the latest bargaining session for a new economic agreement (right). In late April, with Roberts pushing the city to reach an agreement quickly, the parties expected to set a new date for another session of negotiations, and subcommittees assigned to discuss welfare fund benefits, citywide issues, pensions and a salary review procedure were scheduling meetings.

At the March 30 meeting, the city offered raises in the second and third year of a proposed three-year settlement after making an initial offer in an earlier bargaining session for the first year.

At the bargaining table, Roberts is flanked by (from left) DC 37 Treasurer Maf Misbah Uddin, Research and Negotiations Director Dennis Sullivan and Veronica Montgomery-Costa, president of DC 37 and of Local 372.
