It must be pointed out that Mr. Doyle's premise that an agreement had been reached is dead wrong. The city manager, a representative of city council, which actually hss the authority to enter into contracts, negotiated a TENTATIVE agreement. Of course, good faith on both sides was exercised in the negotiation. However, NO CONTRACT was agreed to between the principals since the city council constitutes one of the principals. That a citizen's group had to take council to the "woodshed" to make them remember they are representatives of Pleasanton citizens is besides the point. The "softball" agreement with city staff did not form a contract, and union knows that.
