If you have not heard; SDCERS has told the mayor they are not going to follow his lead and break the law when it comes to imposing the past contract on City Employees. In the Voice of San Diego, Rani Gupta wrote; "Rebecca Wilson, chief of staff of the San Diego City Employees' Retirement System, said the city charter makes clear that all current employees must sign off on several changes to DROP that were part of the contracts imposed on the police, blue-collar workers and city management employees not represented by a union. All changes were to take effect July 1."
It is clear the contracts that were imposed on police officers as well as employees working for Local 127 and managers (Chiefs and Captains) making unilateral changes to DROP must be approved by the employees. That means it is our turn to tell the mayor what he can do with his changes to DROP. The entry age, elimination of the annuity option and the complete elimination of DROP from managers CANNOT be implemented as the mayor demanded. Let's hope someone recognizes the capping of Retiree Medical Payments is similarly flawed and re-instate this promised benefit.
Finally someone is following the law and refusing to blindly follow the mayor's wishes.
