Section 19-181 General provisions.
Prior to the adoption of Ord. 21206 on 01/03/2012, Section 19-181 read as follows.
Any collective bargaining agreements which the city may enter into will be in accordance
with the principles of placement, promotion and/or transfer of employees without regard to race,
creed, color, marital status, national origin, political affiliation, religion,
age, sexual orientation
, gender identity
or ancestry; and shall be consistent with EEO goals.
(b) The director will review job categories where few female
and/or minority group members
are presently employed, and seek to determine the cause of such situations when shown
necessary by study of the available and qualified labor market. Remedial efforts may include
such actions as the following:
(1) More vigorous recruitment of qualified
female and/or minority candidates.
(2) Special discussion with appropriate
management, supervisory, and other personnel,
regarding the city's policy and its desire to ensure full utilization of qualified female and/or
minority group personnel in all operational areas.
(3) Evaluate qualifications of the
lower echelon of female and/or minority group employees
to determine whether under utilized skills and capabilities would potentially be more fully
employed in other capacities, or would warrant their transfer to other types of jobs more readily
leading to advancement. This practice shall be applied equally to all employees.
(c) Placement, promotion, and transfer activities at all
levels will be monitored to ensure that
reasonable, equitable, fair consideration has been given to qualified female and/or minority group
(d) Subcontractors, vendors and suppliers shall be notified
of the city's EEO affirmative action
policy and requested to take appropriate EEO affirmative action within their own employment
(e) The director shall compile at least quarterly statistics
concerning applicants, placement,
and related employment data for the purpose of gauging the effectiveness of the EEO affirmative
(Code 1964, § 22.960; Ord. No. 17016, § 1, 9-17-01)
