As we reported, the contract negotiations are continuing between the Kenai Peninsula Borough Administration and union representing borough employees. We spoke to Terry Bookey, a Capitan with Central Emergency Services, who is speaking on behalf of the employees association.
Capt. Bookey: “As you’re aware, the Kenai Borough’s Employees Association is currently contract negotiations with the Kenai Peninsula Borough. We’ve met approximately 15-times since January 1st, and negotiations are still ongoing. Our next meeting will be today; hopefully we’re able to come to an agreement that is mutually agreeable to both parties.”
Health care is certainly a part of the discussions Bookey said, and the employees are looking to work with the Administration to help reduce health care costs to the Borough.
