Kansas City AFSCME Local 500 settle

Negotiators for Kansas City and a union representing more than 1,700 city employees have reached a tentative agreement on a pay-for-performance wage plan. It would be the first such plan for non-management city workers.
The settlement includes an incentive plan which then begs the question:
How will they be able to prevent favouritism?

The usual reasons for NOT agreeing to such a plan is that they are rife with the opportunity to have individuals passed by for increases even if they were the "better" employee, with the "bad" employee that did all of the show work garnering the favours [but none of the underlying effort to get the job done].

Look elsewhere if this is the type of agreement you are interested in obtaining!
