Strike Called Off; City and SEA Reach Last Minute Deal

The strike by city workers called for today, May 1, has been called off, due to a last-minute agreement between the Sunnyvale Employees Association (SEA) and Sunnyvale City Council. Details of the settlement have not yet been announced.

Via the Mercury News:

The SEA announced the tentative agreement in an e-mail at 3:18 a.m. Monday, saying its members have canceled the strike. Details surrounding the agreement were not immediately made public; union leaders are waiting to present the details to workers.

In an e-mailed statement, Sunnyvale Mayor Glenn Hendricks said: “We are extremely proud of the work our employees do every day and believe our city services are second to none. This agreement means those services won’t be unnecessarily interrupted during work stoppages. We are also very grateful to Supervisor Chavez for getting the two sides together to facilitate the deal.”
