Huntington <br />Drive was WITHDRAWN by the applicant. It is hereby removed from <br />the agenda. <br /> <br />Council received a communication dated May I, 1969, from the City <br />Employee's Association representing the employees of City Hall and <br />the City Library, petitioning to become a formal recognized organi- <br />zation. Attached thereto was a list of its members and by-laws, <br />The City Manager advised in part that he has indicated an intention <br />to follow the law by meeting in good faith with the other three <br />employee associations, to wit: Police Relief and Fire Relief Associa- <br />tions and the American Federation of Labor Association. He felt that <br />it would be inappropriate at this time to recomm~nd formal recognition <br />until bargaining units have been determined and..cLarification of the <br />meaning of formal recognition, but agreed with 'the suggestion .of ,the <br />City Attorney that if it be Council's desire, he could be authorized <br />to negotiate with the associations on matters of immediate concern and <br />when appropriate, move forward with the formal recognition. <br /> <br />It was the consensus of the.City Council that it appears at the present <br />time the subject Association only desires some indication that Council <br />would consider the organization as a petitioning unit subject to the <br />development of enacting legislation, which is necessary before recogni- <br />tion could become formal. Whereupon it was MOVED by Councilman Considine <br />that the City Manager be instructed to conduct meaningful discussions with <br />the four organizations regarding current budget matters, salary and <br />fringe benefits for the ensuing year; that when enabling legislation has <br />been enacted, Council will go forward with formal recognition. Motion <br />seconded by Councilman Rage and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />It was MOVED by Councilman Considine, seconded by Councilman Hage and <br />carried unanimously that bids received for Foothill Boulevard Repair <br />and Joint Sealing (Job # 351) be rejected; that the project limits <br />be extended from Santa Anita Avenue to Baldwin Avenue, and that the <br />City Clerk be authorized to advertise for new bids. This was in <br />connection with the recommendation of the Director of Public Works <br />and the City Manager. The bids were considered high and it was <br />anticipated that with the increase in quantities more favorable bids <br />would be forthcoming. <br /> <br />5-6-69 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
