County To Approve Pay Raises

Audio

Aired 3/1/10

San Diego County Supervisors will vote tomorrow on a 2 percent pay raise for 1,800 County managers and the staff of elected officials.

San Diego County Supervisors will vote tomorrow on a 2 percent pay raise for 1,800 county managers and the staff of elected officials.

Martin Rigby, a human resources manager, says this covers employees not represented by labor negotiations.

"It’s based on what has already been negotiated in the agreements in 2008, 2009 by the labor relations folks at the county," Rigby said. "This is to keep up with the increase that was given at that time."

The increase will cost the county $3 million, but Rigby says that money has already been included in the budget.

San Diego County’s 16,000 salaried employees did not get a pay raise last year, but the 2 percent increase negotiated by their unions will take effect in June of this year.

The County has not imposed any pay cuts on their employees to deal with the economic downturn.

San Diego City workers, from the Mayor on down, took an across the board 6 percent pay cut last year to balance their budget.

Please don't tell me this recommended increase is due to "cost of living". Read the news, the consumer price index's are down last year and seem to be down this year (except for energy and healthcare). If you think it should go up , what about all the refunds due homeowners due to "value dropping" the past two years. If any pay increase, including the planned increase for labor contracts go thru, then the Supervisors are really OUT OF TOUCH and need to be replaced during the upcoming election. We dont need a term limit to do this.

WAKE UP SAN DIEGO
