This is the fourth in a series of CGMC webinars to be held via Zoom to help local governments navigate labor and employment concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

About this FREE webinar
With public finances and the economy projected to continue their severe decline due to COVID-19 and related government actions, public employers must consider how to address their financial bottom-line during labor negotiations and with their workforce budgets.
This webinar will explore what public employers are planning for wage settlements and benefits and cost-cutting with their workforce. Practical and legal strategies will be discussed for negotiating economic and language items and implementing cost-cutting measures related to wage and benefit freezes, reducing work hours, furloughs, hiring freezes, voluntary separation incentives, layoffs, and subcontracting.
