Local 251 has sent a Cease and Desist Letter to Public Works Director Bob Stubbe and all members of City Council. In the letter we inform Director Stubbe and The City Council that the City has mad a unilateral decision, with no input from the Union, to subcontract the repair of “potholes” which is Local 251’s bargaining unit work. The City of Omaha tired to make a unilateral decision to subcontract bargaining unit work. The City of Omaha has a duty to bargain with Local 251 representatives about the impact and effect of its decision to subcontract any of the bargaining unit work. The City of Omaha has been requested to cease and desist from any subcontracting of Local 251’s bargaining unit work, and further, Local 251 has requested to bargain over the impact and effects of the City’s decision to subcontract any of Local 251’s bargaining unit work. If the City of Omaha does not comply we will have no other option but to proceed with filing a prohibited practice with the Nebraska Commission of Industrial Relations.
