Tentative agreement ratified by CMCEA

Members of the Costa Mesa City Employees Association (CMCEA) recently ratified a tentative agreement with the City of Costa Mesa to extend through June 30, 2016. Normally this would have been on the agenda for City Council adoption at the Council meeting following ratification. However, under the City’s new COIN ordinance, two public meetings are required before the Council can vote to adopt the agreement. Both the City and its employees will therefore have to delay the effective date of their agreement until at least Sept. 16, 2014.
