The meeting was scheduled to discuss collective bargaining agreements with:
- Communications Workers of America AFL-CIO, Local No. 1078

The four unions represent the remaining municipal employees working without a renewed contract. All contracts expired at the end of 2011 (with the exception of the Ocean City Beach Patrol, which has not renewed its contract in three years).
Salary and wage increases average 1.2 percent over three years for policemen and firefighters.
