Equal Benefits Ordinance set to go before City Council on Monday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An ordinance that would require contractors doing business with the city of San Diego to offer workers in a domestic partnership the same benefits given to married employees was set to go before the City Council Monday.

The so-called Equal Benefits Ordinance was proposed by District 3 Councilman Todd Gloria and unanimously passed the council's Rules, Open Government and Intergovernmental Relations Committee on June 30. No one spoke against it at the time.

Similar laws have been enacted in Los Angeles, Berkeley, Oakland, Sacramento and the state of California.

Monday's meeting is open to the public and will be held on the 12th floor of the City Administration Building on C Street in downtown San Diego.
