Service Contractor Worker Retention
At the conclusion of the terms of a service contract with the City, or with those receiving financial assistance from the City, competition results in the awarding of a service contract to what may be a different contractor. Despite desired changes through the process of entering into new contracts, it is the experience of the City that the reasons for change do not necessarily include a need to replace workers presently performing services who already have useful knowledge about the workplace where services are performed. Retaining existing service workers when a change in contractors occurs reduces the likelihood of labor disputes and disruptions and assures continuity of services to citizen of Los Angeles.
