- The labor terms (called the “City Employment Terms” or “CET”) apply to most of the City’s Unions, whose contracts expired on June 30, 2012.
- In accordance with the FSA, the Mayor submitted the CET satisfying Annex D to the FAB.
- The FAB reviewed the CET, made comments, and approved.
- The Mayor then submitted the CET to City Council.
