AFSCME TO HOLD PRESS BRIEFING TUESDAY, AUG. 25, TO DISCUSS NEW BARGAINING PUBLICATION

 AFSCME TO HOLD PRESS BRIEFING TUESDAY, AUG. 25,
 TO DISCUSS NEW BARGAINING PUBLICATION
 District Councils 33 and 47 of AFSCME, which represents 15,000 city employees, will hold press briefing tomorrow, Aug. 25, at 11 a.m., in the sixth floor ballroom of District Council 33's headquarters, 3001 Walnut St., Philadelphia.
 Union leaders will discuss a new AFSCME publication that illustrates how employee participation and union representation can improve the city's economic well-being and improve the delivery of public services to Philadelphia residents.
 This pamphlet is the first systematic presentation of AFSCME's proposal to the Edward G. Rendell administration to adopt "Total Quality Management," or "TQM" for short. This new approach to improving city management has been tried successfully in other cities, and even in some departments in Philadelphia, saving the city millions of dollars. AFSCME already has found that worker-generated ideas could raise more than $170 million in savings for the city.
 James Sutton, president of District Council 33, and Thomas P. Cronin, president of District Council 47, said, "We've tried the mayor's way of balancing the city's budget before, through a decade of concessions and sacrifices. That won't work any longer. Philadelphia's future demands a new approach, one that replaces confrontation with partnership. This brochure shows that our members are prepared to accept the challenge of change."
 Copies of the AFSCME publication will be available to the press at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
 CONTACT: Dwight Kirk of AFSCME District Council 33, 215-895-3300.
