UPLAND – City Manager Stephen Dunn has placed his recommendation on outsourcing public safety on hold pending the outcome of labor negotiations.

Dunn said during the City Council meeting Monday that all seven of the employee groups have offered to pay their portion of their pension.

“It appears that the combined savings from all the employee groups will exceed potentially any savings I could get from outsourcing either police services or fire services, which means that I am putting the analysis of those services on hold pending the outcome of the labor agreements,” Dunn said.

The city has responded to the employees’ concessions and is now working out the details on the agreements, which should be ready for City Council approval at the next meeting, on Jan. 28, he said.
