• City Worker Union Files Charges Against City

    United Public Employees of California, the union that represents City of Pacific Grove workers, has filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge against the City. Papers were filed on Fri., Jan. 31.

    The union alleges that the City violated its obligation to bargain, meet and confer, exhaust impasse procedures, and provide public information under the California Government Code regarding turning over city services to private contractors.

    If the City hands over management of city services to a private business, the city gives up control over how those services will operate,” said Chris Darker, business manager for the union.

    Pacific Grove City Manager Tom Frutchey said that the matter has been turned over to City attorney David Laredo and agendized for closed session at the next City Council meeting, Feb. 5. “Only with advice from the City Attorney will the Council take any action,” he said.
