Update: City Reaches Agreement with AFSCME Members

The City of Tucson's Human Resources department, with the assistance of a federal mediator, last night reached a new labor agreement with AFSCME Local 449. The previous agreement expired on Monday after the Mayor and Tucson City Council issued a 60-day continuance in June. The two-year agreement will go to Mayor and Council for ratification next month. AFSCME represents 692 city workers, of which 229 are members.
