On behalf of your Local 140 E-Board, I am pleased to announce that, the Civil Service Commission voted to approve the pay plan for the upcoming budget with a amendment to include the reinstatement of the increments. The Metro City Council will approve and pass the reinstatement of our step increments starting July 1, 2013 AND a 1.5% across the board pay raise for ALL employees effective January 1, 2014. More details will be made available concerning the step increment reinstatement; however, you should expect to be promoted to the next step you would have been eligible for when the increments were frozen (i.e. if you are presently at step 2, then you will be promoted to step 3). We realize this does not fix the issue of those hired within the last five years making the same amount as those hired five years ago. Your E-Board is committed to address this inequity as we move forward.
Thank you to all who have spent countless hours pushing to reinstate our step increments!
