Title
Approving the revision of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement between the City of Toledo and AFSCME Local 7, Communication Operators Unit, for a successor agreement, consistent with the bargained understandings; and declaring an emergency.

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
The City of Toledo and AFSCME Local 7, Communication Operators Unit, reached a tentative agreement over terms that revise the current collective bargaining agreement, which expired on June 30, 2020, for a successor agreement, for the new term of July 1, 2020 through approximately October 1, 2021, when the bargaining unit will cease to exist.

Only those employees who are employed as of the union ratification date, August 23, 2021, are entitled to the COVID premium payment.
