City Staff Receives 1.5 Percent Salary Bump
Across-the-board raise matches 2012's and the unionized staff raises.
Beachwood City Council approved a measure to bump administrative pay by 1.5 percent in 2013 and 2014 at Monday's meeting.
The raise matches 2012's and is the same bump that unionized city workers negotiated for 2013 and 2014.
One year ago, the firefighters union negotiated a revised three-year contract that lowered annual wage increases from 3 percent to 1.5 percent through 2014, and the police union matched it days later.
This firefighters union contract also requires that the city increase the annual wage increase to 3 percent Dec. 1, 2013 if Ohio provides an alternative to make up the roughly $2 million the city was expected to lose this year in estate tax collections.
