Pleasant Hills collective bargaining agreement on hold

Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, 12:11 a.m.
 

Pleasant Hills officials want additional clarification on a proposed collective bargaining agreement between the borough and the Utility Workers Union of America, which represents full- and part-time office staff, police dispatchers, public works and Pleasant Hills Authority employees.

Councilors unanimously voted to table the proposal following an hour-long executive session on Monday.

“As you can imagine, it's pretty comprehensive and very complex,” Councilman William Trimbath said. “After some discussions tonight we still have some clarification that we need to do.”

Mayor Warren Bourgeois offered similar comments after the meeting.

“This is the first contract because they didn't have a union until roughly a year ago,” the mayor said. “They approved (the union) and then they started negotiating. The result of that negotiation took a long time because it was a new thing for everybody.”

Trimbath declined to discuss terms of the agreement.

“I really can't go over that because it's still in negotiations,” he said.

Council unanimously approved a development agreement with Bakery Barn. The business at 111 Terence Drive is expanding. Further details were not available at presstime.

Council approved a development agreement for JDM Structures LTD, which is proposing a business along Clairton Boulevard that would sell sheds.

The borough is seeking a full-time public works laborer. More information about the position is available online at www.pleasanthillspa.com.
