All non-union city workers get raises in Avon


AVON — City Council approved raises Monday for all full and part-time employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements.

All administrative positions covered under collective bargaining agreements received 2 percent raises for 2017 under those agreements. Mayor Bryan Jensen said the city routinely reviews the salaries of those not represented by a union every year after new collective bargaining agreements are hashed out in order to keep things fair.

Monday’s ordinance gives 2 percent raises for 40 employees who aren’t represented by a union. Sixteen of those employees are salaried and 24 are paid by the hour. The 16 salaried employees will receive annual increases that range from $366 more for the Mayor’s Court magistrate to $2,190 more for the chief financial officer.

Hourly employees will see increases that range from 30 cents more an hour for some employees in the parks, senior transportation program and utilities departments to 64 cents more an hour for the assistant superintendent of utilities.

Jensen said the city gives raises to all employees not covered by a union every year to keep things in line with contracts for the employees represented by unions, such as those in the police and fire departments.

“This mirrors pay agreements for our bargaining units in 2017,” Jensen said.
