Layoff Exemptions

The City has elected to use the Letter of Understanding to exempt two Operators from layoff.
The Letter of Understanding states, in part:
“Permanent employees in the affected organizational unit will be laid off in reverse order of
seniority after taking into primary consideration any specific knowledge, qualifications and/or skills that are difficult or impractical to acquire.”
This action was taken within the meaning of the Letter of Understanding signed by all Coalition Unions and over ATU 569’s strenuous objections. It does, however, comply with the LOU. No other exceptions were permitted.
