The city of Beverly Hills is preparing to start negotiations with its six non-sworn employee bargaining groups and the public is encouraged to attend a community meeting detailing the negotiation process on Thursday, Feb. 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the Beverly Hills City Hall Council Chambers, 455 N Rexford Drive. The meeting will also be broadcast virtually on-demand at beverlyhills.org/live.
The city’s independent labor negotiator and city staff will provide a general overview of negotiations including future opportunities for public input, timelines and the process for City Council consideration and approval.
In 2014, the Beverly Hills City Council adopted a Civic Openness in Negotiations ordinance, known as COIN, to provide additional impartiality and transparency to the collective bargaining process. The Feb. 9 meeting is the initial step in the process. The first public meeting seeking specific community input will be held during the City Council meeting on Feb. 21 at 7 p.m.
In accordance with state law, the city of Beverly Hills participates in labor negotiations with its employee associations. The results of the negotiations process are written agreements or contracts reached between the city and the city employee associations. The agreements are referred to as a memorandum of understanding.
The memorandum of understanding for the Municipal Employees Association, Municipal Employees Association Part-time, Management and Professional, Safety Support, Supervisors and Confidential groups are scheduled to expire in October 2023.
