The city and its unions
Re “Council Imposes Labor Pact; Walkout Possible,” Aug. 16
The breadth of professional talent that spans the membership of the Engineers and Architects Assn. fashions a good portion of what might be seen as the human backbone of Los Angeles city government. Why wouldn’t city management want the same for association members as it does for other represented employee groups, especially Department of Water and Power employees?
Airport employees are willing to work for DWP workers’ wage scales, in spite of their overwhelming economic advantage to the city. Why doesn’t the city see that as a bargain?
