DETROIT AFSCME WORKERS REJECT PROPOSED CONCESSIONS

 DETROIT AFSCME WORKERS REJECT PROPOSED CONCESSIONS
 DETROIT, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit city workers represented by


Michigan Council 25 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) have strongly rejected a proposed contract which incorporated a 10-percent reduction in the work week.
 "With returns from 10 of the 16 local unions, the preliminary tally of votes makes it clear the members have rejected this proposal," stated Charles McCracken, director of field services for AFSCME Council 25, speaking on behalf of Council 25 and the Detroit local unions' officers and bargaining committee.
 At this time, no vote totals, preliminary or final, are available for release.
 "The Detroit city workers are without a contract at this time, because the city's negotiators have refused to extend the old contract during further bargaining," continued McCracken. "The Detroit local union presidents who comprise the bargaining committee will be meeting on Thursday, July 16, to review the situation, to consider the options available to us, and to plan the next step in this process."
 AFSCME leadership previously rejected a related proposal presented as an ultimatum by Detroit Mayor Coleman A. Young during a meeting with the local union presidents last April.
 Michigan AFSCME Council 25 and affiliated local unions represent more than 6,000 city of Detroit workers and more than 60,000 public workers statewide.
