This agenda item asks the City Council for authorization to appeal an arbitrator’s decision in a personnel matter.
On September 30, 2017, a decision was rendered by an arbitrator in a personnel matter. It is believed that the decision reached by the arbitrator violates the Civil Service Regulations of the City of Sparks and the Sparks Police Protective Association (“SPPA”) Sergeants Collective Bargaining Agreement. Based upon the noncompliant nature of the arbitrator’s decision, the City believes that it is necessary to appeal the arbitrator’s decision to the Washoe County District Court.
The City Attorney believes this decision is incorrect and violates the Civil Service Regulations.
City Council could choose to not approve appealing the arbitrator’s decision.
City Council could choose to not approve appealing the arbitrator’s decision and provide direction to the City Manager.
I move to authorize the appeal of the arbitrator’s decision in the personnel matter.
