How does it work? - The Basics
  • Each year employee groups meet with management to work together on employment issues.
  • Managers and Employees collaborate on ideas for a variety of solutions and enhancements for any Town, City or Fire District.
  • Employees not organized in an employee group are not prevented from meeting with management, “open door” polices remain.
  • All parties are expected to work together in good faith with an eye on productive and effective solutions using an interest-based process.
  • In the rare event of impasse, disputes are attempted to be resolved through non-binding mediation.
  • All agreements and disputes are ultimately decided by Elected City Council and that decision is final.
