Green ratified three-year labor agreements between the city and the dispatchers and municipal employees union.
KEY ACTION: Ratified three-year labor agreements between the city and members of the AFSCME dispatchers and municipal employees unions.
DISCUSSION: Councilman and rules and personnel committee vice chair Stephen Dyer said each of the agreements included a 2% raise in each of the three years.
“There is no real change in the medical benefits package,” Dyer said. “And there is a substantial increase in what the city will pay for education.”
The municipal employees’ contract, Dyer said, also included additional payment based upon years of service. “That is the one major difference (between the contracts),” he said.
Mayor Gerard Neugebauer clarified the service longevity payments would be made annually, not in a lump sum payment, as Dyer had indicated.
