Labor unions seeking more perks from Phoenix

Labor unions are not only seeking pay raises but additional perks for union-covered Phoenix workers.

The Arizona Republic reports labor groups want better health coverage, more vacation days and more protection for employees’ rights.

The police department is asking for more vacation and sick time and the fire department is asking for dental coverage to go up from $2,000 a month to $3,500 a month per employee.

Office workers have asked for the city to increase how much it will match in employee retirement contributions.

Labor groups representing fieldworkers think employees applying poisonous pesticides should get paid an additional 75 cents an hour.

Mayor-elect Greg Stanton says this year’s negotiations will be tough. Stanton takes office Tuesday.
