The Brewster City Council held an executive session during their last council meeting to discuss potential litigation surrounding negotiations for labor union contracts.
The term “executive session” refers to a closed door portion of public meetings to discuss matters that are generally treated as confidential. A governing body may hold an executive session only for specified purposes, and only during regular or special public meetings.
Brewster Mayor, Lee Webster, says that when the executive session closed, the council authorized him to retain consultation.
Labor Union Contract negotiations typically hammer out conditions of employment such as wages, working hours, overtime, holidays, retirement benefits and health care and result in a written agreement that, in Brewster’s case, will last three years."CLICK HERE" for Audio
