County Pay Increase Will Not Affect Managers

Audio

San Diego County officials say a vote today to increase unclassified employee salaries by 2 percent will not give managers and executives a pay raise.

San Diego County officials say a vote today to increase unclassified employee salaries by 2 percent will not give managers and executives a pay raise.

The Director of Human Resources for the County, Carlos Arauz, says the money budgeted for the increase is to match a union contract negotiated two years ago. It gave classified employees no raise last year and 2 percent this year. But Arauz says, that match will only be given to employees who have similar positions as the union workers.

"There’s also an increase to the salary ranges of the unclassified staff, meaning the executives and so on," Arauz said. "But those employees will not be receiving any kind of increase at all."

Most elected officials at the County have declined to accept pay raises they could have claimed, citing the poor economy.

However, Treasurer Tax Collector Dan McAllister, and County Assessor Dave Butler, both accepted previously approved pay raises of 3 percent and 4.5 percent respectively.
