The plaintiff, a union representing city employees, brought an action against the City for injunctive relief based upon a proposed outsourcing plan and layoff notices sent to over 100 employees. The trial court granted a preliminary injunction enjoining the City from contracting with a private entity for any of the services that are performed by union members, or laying off union members as a result of such contracting. The appeal concerned only the grant of the preliminary injunction. The appellate court noted the collective bargaining agreement/MOU states: “should a decision be made to contract out for a specific service which is at the time being performed by employees covered by the MOU, the employees affected will be given sufficient time (a minimum of six months) in which to evaluate their own situation and plan for their future.” The appellate court ruled the trial court did not abuse its discretion in granting the preliminary injunction. .
