Reversal by Council on Former Employe Benefits The city council has reverse! itself in a controversy over whether previously-earned se niority and longevity benefits should be given an employe who returns to work for the city after a period in private busi .ess. The case involves Earl 0 Reeve, 115 Twenty-first avenue SW, auto shop foreman in the street department, Reeve worked for (he city from 1954 until 1960, then left to work in private industry until he was rehired by the city in 1962. According to city policy, he was not entitled to any benefits earned during .'his first period of employment. Offered Benefits Reeve, however, said he was offered back benefits as an in- ducement to return to work for the city. He had copies of letters from the shop. foreman and public works superintendent at the time of his re-employment, af- firming the offer of previously- earned benefits. In November of last year, the city council granted Reeve the seniority and longevity from his first period of employ- ment, precipitating a grievance by 51 other employes. t Grievance Committee The central grievance com- mittee heard thescase and rec ommended the council either take away Reeve's additiona benefits or grant the same bene- fits to all other employes whc had returned to work for thi city after an absence. This week the council look th< former course, voting unani mously to allow Reeve only the benefits earned from the star of his second period of employ merit. Public Improvements Com missioner Richard Phillips, who has responsibility over the street department and recom- mended the action, said the change of heart came because the offer to Reeve was not made a person who had authority to make it. Original Thought .Originally, Phillips said, he bought the council was homi- ng the commitment of a pre- v i o u s council, because he bought the offer was made by 'owner Commissioner W.W itolba. The council is not obligated to a commitment made without proper "authority, he in- dicated. Phillips also said granting .the benefits would set a poor prece- dent, because many other city employes are in the same posi- ion as Reeve. Think small, .use a Classified Ad for big results.
