Takoma Park Mayor and Council approve compensation plan for city employees

Takoma Park Mayor Bruce Williams and all present City Councilmembers voted unanimously to approve a compensation and classification plan for city employees Monday night. Collective bargaining among the city, AFSCME Council 67 Local 3399 (representing most City employees) and UFCW Local 400 (representing police officers) resulted in a system that will bring city salaries up to market level by FY-2017.

A new step system will offer increases of 1.25% within a grade. Employees designated as "distinguished" via evaluation will be eligible for an additional step each year they are rated as such.

The fiscal impact of the new plan to the city will be $1.2 million over three years.
