Agreement Averts NYC Parks Layoffs

Friday, 19 Aug 2011 09:09 AM

 

NEW YORK — A contract agreement between New York City and its largest municipal union has spared 465 parks department jobs.

The New York Post reports that the pact was reached just days before layoff notices were to go out.

Under the agreement, the city can go ahead with a plan to ask a number of full-time parks workers to voluntarily switch to six-month seasonal duties over the next three years. That would save the city about $16 million this fiscal year, enough to avert the layoffs.
