EPA labor negotiations resume

by Don Kazak

Talks between striking East Palo Alto workers and city officials resumed Thursday morning. Workers and members of the Service Employees International Union held a noon rally at City Hall, while the City Council set a special closed session for tonight to discuss the negotiations.

About two dozen city workers went on strike Monday morning over issue of wages, binding arbitration for grievances, and establishing an agency shop.

The striking workers are secretaries, maintenance workers, planners and accountants, among others.
