The PERC Commission, sanctioned by the State of Florida PERC, to serve as an independent, neutral body, convenes whenever necessary, to hear petitions before it about collective bargaining issues such as certification, amending certification, decertification, unfair labor practice or unit clarification, etc.
The City Commission appoints three regular representatives (non-City employees) and one alternate representative to serve a four-year term on PERC without pay.
The Personnel Policies are a guide to the City's personnel management system and applicable state and federal employment laws. They govern personnel-related matters of the City unless superseded by other specific regulations established in the City Charter or Code or Florida Statutes.
They do not apply to employees covered under the terms of a collective bargaining agreement (union contract) or expired collective bargaining agreement which is subject to renegotiations, unless otherwise specifically provided for.
