Golden Gate Dispute Resolution


Interest arbitration award for City and County of San Francisco published

I was recently selected by the Employer and the Union to be the chairperson of the mediation / arbitration board for the City and County of San Francisco and San Francisco City Workers United (Painters). The issue was the renegotiation of the parties' collective bargaining agreement. After four days of on-the-record hearings and off-the-record mediation efforts, there were still twelve issues in dispute. The arbitration award for a three-year agreement was issued and has now been published on the Employer's and the Union's websites. The award is linked here. - Paul
