Workplace Issues Today: Los Angeles workers accept deal

15 of 19 bargaining units in Los Angeles accepted a deal that will raise health care and pension costs, but also wages for workers. The deal, which the Mayor says will save around $200 million over the next several years, also includes a no furlough clause for the duration of the agreement, which runs through 2014. The Mayor said that those who rejected the deal would be subject to as many as 36 furlough next year. The group of workers who voted on the deal does not include police and firefighters, who are holding separate negotiations. Workers who rejected the deal include attorneys and clerical workers.
