More details on civilian employee concessions

Today’s story on Stockton’s updated budget situation mentioned that non-public safety employees had agreed to a total of about $3 million in concessions to chip away at the city’s $23 million general fund deficit.

That’s true, but you might be asking: Didn’t one employee group alone, the Stockton City Employees’ Association, agree to $4.87 million worth of concessions?

Human Resources Director Dianna Garcia says yes. But only about $1.28 million of it applies to the taxpayer-financed general fund budget.

Because these employees work for a variety of departments that don’t all depend on the general fund, the remainder of the workers’ concessions are applied as savings in other city funds (the types that are financed through other means, such as utility rates, fees, etc).
