GOOD NEWS – MEA Has Secured An Additional 10% Special Salary Increase for Park Rangers!

As a result of MEA’s existing two-year labor contract negotiated with the City last year, all MEA-represented employees are already scheduled to receive a 5% general salary increase on July 1, 2022. In addition, Park Rangers received an SSA in that contract that still has a scheduled 5% increase effective January 1, 2023.

Our current contract also allows for a limited “reopener” to negotiate additional Special Salary Adjustments (SSAs) to become effective in the coming Fiscal Year, and earlier this week MEA reached an agreement with the City for a new 10% SSA for Park Rangers!

Accordingly, Park Rangers (Park Ranger Aide, Park Ranger, and Senior Park Ranger) will receive the following pay raises over the next 12 months:

These pay increases compound upon one another, which means that by this time next year your pay will be 21.6% higher than your pay today.

These pay increases are the product of a multi-year advocacy campaign for more competitive pay and benefits for MEA-represented employees. MEA’s entire leadership team, its staff and legal counsel have all been single-minded in their focus to get general and special salary increases like these implemented by the City.

MEA also wishes to recognize and appreciate the leadership of Mayor Todd Gloria and the City Council for their support of these well-deserved pay increases.
