SAN JOSE, Calif., June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Three San Jose city unions establish 24/7 mobile negotiations center to demand negotiations on pension reform. Media availability and press conference scheduled.
Negotiating teams for IFPTE, Local 21 & AMSP.
June 6, 2011
4:00 AM to 12:00 PM Media Availability
12:00 PM Press Conference
East Santa Clara Street, between 4th & 5th Streets
(Across from San Jose City Hall)
San Jose, CA 95113
Beginning at 4:00 AM Monday, unions representing architects and engineers (AEA), mid-level managers (CAMP) and maintenance supervisors (AMSP) will staff an RV parked across the street from San Jose City Hall 24/7 prepared to meet with the City on a moment's notice to negotiate on pension reform.
"After over a year of heated rhetoric calling for public employee pension reform, and just a few days before it may vote to declare a phony 'fiscal emergency,' the City is refusing to negotiate the very pension reforms they have been clamoring for," said John Mukhar, President of AEA/IFPTE Local 21.
At a meeting held on Friday, June 3rd, the City Administration told the leadership of AEA, CAMP and AMSP that it is: "... not prepared to discuss pension reform until after the ballot measure language is drafted." The City Administration distributed a letter that made reference to language for a proposed ballot measure and refused to discuss cost saving pension reform proposals as they were directed by the City Council to do. AEA/CAMP/AMSP will release notes attributed to all nine union attendees at this meeting demonstrating how City negotiator's are stonewalling on real pension reform.

Worthless union thugs at it again.
State and Local Government in California are a bunch of self serving budget busting PIGS.

F the public unions. Those pigs have been at the trough too long
That is a bald faced lie!
Chuck very much wants to negotiate a package to keep as many employees as possible.
In fact, he detailed how one department, SJPD, will be forced layoff 126 officers. He doesn’t want to but it looks like it’s likely as the deadline for the budget came and went last week.
He’s confident many of the officers will be rehired after the budget is approved but there will still many who will not be returning.
Same goes for these unions.
Everyone was made aware of the deadline and in fact they know the process.
The unions refuse to give on iota and will now be losing several members.
This is a phony meeting tomorrow designed to get cameras in there so they can say “Where’s the Mayor?”.
It’s a PR stunt.
You pushed your position a little to hard and now you have to wait as the law requires. Chuck can’t sit down with you right now even if you all could reasonably agree.
Have a good time ..... wasting time and trying to shaft the taxpayer who is having a heck of a time just trying to keep their job, a roof over their heads and food on the table.
That guy is hilarious!

Thanks for the info on this.
That's right, folks. No fiscal problems in California. There are towering mountains of free money that the eeeevil local governments refuse to give to the honest, hardworking public sector unions.
I don't know how Californians sleep at night, denying public sector employees the right to six figure salaries, free health care and lavish retirements for stamping forms and answering phones. Those copies aren't going to make themselves, you know.
Those BS artists were on the news this morning just as I predicted.
A friend wanted to know what was going on.
I repeated the story and Chuck has no other route, at this point, as a legal obligation.
So they are screwing a bunch of their own for no reason other than their sick avarice.
Are you talking about me? I’m sore as hell with the bastards!
You the guy with the videos from Suisun City?
yeah——I’m the guy who produces the Sewer Soon City and Solano Communist County video series. Last night at the Sewer Soon City council I told them there had been a burglary in the city every day and that was unacceptable. I complained about the wasting of police resources and pointed to 3 police officers in the room at that time-—”what are you doing here-—you should be out patrolling! The burglars are not at the city council meetings!”. The Chief then had to explain himself and he sounded like a fool. I have it all on tape and am getting ready to put it up on YouTube.
You uh Rabel Rouser.
Send me the link when you slap it up.
