Pay reforms likely killed 

Two civil service reforms that would save the deficit-ridden city money likely are not going on the June ballot.

Judging by concerns raised during Thursday’s Board of Supervisors Rules Committee meeting, it appears that the two City Charter amendment proposals may not be approved by the committee to go before the full board for consideration.

One amendment would extend the workweek of firefighters from 48.7 to 52 hours.

It could save The City about $6.9 million by reducing overtime pay. Another would eliminate the provision that requires The City to pay Muni operators a base wage that averages the two highest nationally. Instead, it would set pay through labor negotiations.
