MORE GOOD NEWS – MEA HAS SECURED AN ADDITIONAL 10% SPECIAL SALARY INCREASE FOR WATER PLANT OPERATORS – TO BE ADDED TO THE 21% GENERAL SALARY INCREASE IN NEW 3-YEAR CONTRACT
As a follow up to MEA’s earlier E-blast regarding contract negotiations, MEA’s Tentative Agreement (TA) with the City includes an additional 10% special salary increase for Water Operations Supervisor, Senior Water Operations Supervisor, and Water Production Superintendent job classifications.
Accordingly, if this TA is ratified by MEA’s membership tomorrow, employees in these job classifications will receive the following general and special salary increases over the 3-year term of this agreement:
Year 1 (FY 2024) – 10%
July 1, 2023: 5% (general salary increase)
January 1, 2024: 5% (general salary increase)
Year 2 (FY 2025) – 11%
July 1, 2024: 4% (general salary increase)
January 1, 2025: 5% (special salary increase)
January 1, 2025: 2% (general salary increase)
Year 3 (FY 2026) – 10%
July 1, 2025: 5% (general salary increase)
January 1, 2026: 5% (special salary increase)
Each general and special salary increase compounds when implemented, which means that over the next two and a half years your pay will steadily grow to be 35.4% higher than today!
Congratulations on this well-earned additional pay increase. Please be ready for the upcoming contract ratification vote by MEA’s membership tomorrow on May 2. Your participation will be critical to ensure that these pay increases are approved and implemented.
