BRAWLEY — The Brawley City Council will have a special meeting to discuss labor negotiations on Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. in council chambers here.
Primarily a closed-session meeting, the city will have a conference with its labor negotiator, Dan Kelley, and the various employee organizations.
"We're hoping to settle with most of the different bargaining units," said Mayor Wayne Johnson.
Johnson indicated the only bargaining unit he expected to not reach agreement with was the Brawley Public Safety Association, the employee organization that represents Brawley police officers.
Contract negotiations with the Brawley Public Safety Association have been ongoing for several months as the sides have not been able to reach an agreement. A Superior Court judge recently ordered the City Council to rescind the portion of the budget for police and reopen negotiations with the police officers' union.
