(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Mayor Dave Snow informed members of Common Council Tuesday night that a contract between the city and the AFSCME union has been overwhelming rejected. AFSCME represents employees of the Street, Sanitation, and Parks Department. Those members rejected the city’s contract offer by a 56-5 vote. Snow told council that a fact-finding panel would be formed to address the issues that separate the two parties. The city’s other unions all agreed to new contracts last year.
