The grievance was filed last month after council voted to award a three-year contract to Veolia Environmental Services of German Township, said Richard Caponi, director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 84.

We believe they improperly voted to contact out that service," Caponi said.
The grievance, which seeks to settle the dispute through arbitration, alleges council failed to follow a contact provision obligating council to meet with the union and explain why retaining an outside contractor is being considered, Caponi said.
He said the two sides might have been able to settle their differences through the "meet-and-discuss" contract provision.
"They were obligated to meet and discuss.They failed to do that," Caponi said.
Council never notified the union that hiring a private contractor was being considered and didn't notify the union that it was going to be replaced with a private contractor until after the grievance was filed, he said.
"They didn't notify us until after the grievance was filed," Caponi said.
We understand it's a costly thing," Caponi said."That's the frustrating part.A lot of this could have been resolved."
Among the topics the union would have liked to discuss, Caponi said, was the city's garbage billing, collection and delinquent bill collection processes.
"Our people should be doing that work," Caponi said.
He said he hopes the arbitrator orders council to cancel its contract with Veolia, even though the city could appeal that decision to Fayette County Common Pleas Court.
