Corona Supervisors Association - Side Letter.




The City is currently engaged in labor negotiations with all five bargaining associations. Due to the complex nature of the current negotiations, the Corona Supervisors Association (“CSA”) has entered into a Side Letter to extend the current Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”).



Recommended action                     

That the City Council approve the Side Letter of Agreement Extending the 2019-2021 Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Corona and the Corona Supervisors Association to November 15, 2021.




The City entered into an MOU with CSA in 2019 with an expiration date of June 30, 2021. The Parties are currently negotiating for a successor MOU and believe the process will take additional time beyond the expiration of the MOU, as the negotiations involve both significant re-writes to MOU provisions as well as consideration of a classification and compensation study that the City had a consultant prepare in anticipation of negotiations. The Parties have agreed to an extension of their MOU in exchange for a one-time payment being made to each member of the bargaining unit.



In signing the Side Letter of Agreement with CSA:


a.                     The Parties agree that the expiration date of their current MOU is extended to November 15, 2021.


b.                     The City agrees that each member of the bargaining unit represented by CSA as of August 19, 2021, will receive a one-time payment equivalent to two percent (2%) of their salary on September 10, 2021.


c.                     The City agrees that if the Parties are able to reach an agreement on a successor MOU before November 15, 2021, the MOU will go into effect on the first day of the pay period following City Council approval (following CSA ratification) of the MOU.


d.                     The City agrees that it will continue to roll-up the medical insurance premiums into the overtime rate of CSA members until the earlier of the first date of the Parties’ successor MOU or November 15, 2021.



The financial impact of the Side Letter with CSA is $89,407, based on active membership at the time this report was prepared.  The total includes the Medicare and Unemployment Insurance contributions. The following is a breakdown by funding source:
