Series consists of annual file sets primarily on "anomalies", but including arbitrations and a few grievances, relating to City (employer) negotiations with the inside (Local 15) and outside (Local 1004) unions, including Parks, Police, and Library units. Inside union predominant dates are 1957-1969; outside union predominant dates are 1952-1969. (Not all years are represented because discussions took place around union contract periods.) Series also includes files documenting union jurisdiction and certification. Documented are primarily union jobs (e.g., Clerk III, Housing Inspectors, etc.), along with position histories (and frequently mentioning the names of the individuals who filled them), but the odd senior position is represented also. Records include Board of Arbitration minutes (reference copies), some draft agreements with the unions, correspondence with the unions, internal correspondence, analyses of various types (including positions surveys, i.e., charts which compare the same positions among several government and/or private sector organizations), and departmental organization charts which situate the positions being considered for reclassification or salary increase/decrease. Arranged alphabetically by file title (i.e., fringe benefits, inside union, outside union, statutory holidays, etc.), and therein chronologically. The files were arranged according to "inside union" and "outside union", and therein designated by year, with detailed and inconsistent file titles (these are cited on the file folders only, for privacy reasons).
