Fiscal Note
This ordinance provides for compensation changes for 2016 through 2019 for employees in Teamsters Union Local 695, on the following schedule:

2015 -- 0% (December 2014)
2016 -- 2% (December 2015)
2017 -- 3% (December 2016)
2018 -- 2% (December 2017)
2019 -- 2% (December 2018)

These compensation increases are expected to cost $2.8 million over the life of the contract. In 2015, pay increases totaling 2.26% were budgeted for this unit similar to general city employees. As such, there will be savings in the 2015 Metro Transit operating budget of approximately $620,000 associated with this contract.

The contract also includes an increase in the City contribution to post-employment health benefits of approximately $37,400 through 2018.

The City contribution toward health insurance will also be reduced from 105% to 100% of the lowest cost premium, effective in 2016. Based on 2015 premium rates and participation by plan, this change would have a minimal fiscal effect.

The contract also allows the City to change the plan design for health insurance to the Option 4: Deductible Plan offered by the Wisconsin Local Government Employers Pool, when all City employees move to this option. This change is anticipated to save 5% of premium rates. This is estimated to save approximately $1.5 million to $1.8 million in the overall City budget.

Work rule changes associated with attendance are anticipated to save approximately $300,000 to $350,000 over the term of the agreement.
