A ballot proposal by Mayor Ed Lee to increase the pension contributions of city employees – along with other reforms meant to save San Francisco money – is ready to be introduced to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
“I would say that we’re ready,” Lee said. “We are ready to present tomorrow a very united front.”
While Lee emphasized that the myriad unions involved in the talks are on board with the proposal, there is still one major holdout. The mayor would not say whether that holdout was the largest union representing city workers, SEIU 1021, but we’ve heard that the union is scheduled to meet with Lee later on Monday.
Lee will also be meeting with Jeff Adachi Monday afternoon to go over his plan. Adachi has his own dueling pension reform measure for the November ballot, which is currently in the signature gathering stage.
