With public finances and the economy projected to continue their severe decline due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public employers are now considering how to address their financial bottom-line during labor negotiations and with their workforce budgets.

The CGMC is conducting a survey to better understand what local governments will be doing with wages and other cost-cutting measures. We plan to use the findings to advise cities on dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please fill out the survey at https://bit.ly/LaborSurvey2020. We plan to leave the survey open indefinitely and update the results as more data becomes available. However, we encourage you to fill it out as soon as you can as we will use the information to help guide our June 9 webinar.
