Almost four years ago, the Employees Association and the Management/Board of Directors of the Padre Dam Municipal Water District (serving the East San Diego County, CA, area) decided to work out their differences and work together to make their utility more competitive. An Employee Involvement Team (EIT) was formed with a commitment to improve organizational effectiveness, increase trust, and raise employee morale. The commitment of the labor/management group ultimately led to the formation of a “Workforce Partnership.” This partnership led to a joint commitment of labor and management to make Padre Dam a more competitive organization. This commitment resulted in an agreement to meet what they called their “Competitive Challenge.”

These changes have resulted in an emerging culture of partnership and ownership, and the Competitive Challenge is moving forward. The EIT has worked hand in hand with labor, management, and the board of directors in guiding this effort in a more successful and competitive organization.
