On May 21, 2013, Mayor Alvin Brown announced a tentative agreement on retirement reform with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) union. The next day, Mayor Brown announced a tentative agreement with the Jacksonville Supervisor's Association (JSA).
AFSCME represents approximately 2,000 general employees who serve in clerical, technical, and administrative positions. JSA represents approximately 460 city employees who serve in supervisory positions.
“Our general employees perform important work for our community,” said Mayor Brown. “Working together with AFSCME, we have achieved retirement reform that will help ensure financial sustainability for both taxpayers and employees.”
