Pew Report Documents Challenges Faced by Philadelphia in Paying for City Workers' Pensions and Health Care
Date:6/29/2009

nsation for Philadelphia's city employees appears to be roughly in line with the average of state and local governments nationwide.

A year ago, the city and its four unions--AFSCME District Councils 33 and 47, the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 5, and Local 22 of the International Association of Fire Fighters--agreed to create a joint labor-management committee to study, discuss and release recommendations on best practices to contain health-care costs. The committee has not released any findings to date.

About the Report

To prepare this report, researchers at Pew's Philadelphia Research Initiative spent two months studying city documents, interviewing city officials, communicating with union representatives, and talking to independent analysts. It was written by Thomas Ginsberg, project manager at the Initiative, and research associate Laura Horwitz.
