Ballot Measure Would Adjust S.F. Employees’ Health Fees
Jeff Adachi, San Francisco public defender, is trying to place a measure on the November ballot that would increase pension and health plan contributions for city employees. Specifically, the proposal would require city workers to pay 9% to 10% of their income to pensions and pay 50% of the cost of health coverage for dependents. The Department of Elections has about 30 days to determine whether the initiative qualifies for the ballot.
