Body

Whereas, 2011 Wisconsin Act 10 (“Act 10”) limited bargaining rights for general municipal employees to based wages and;

Whereas, The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) is a certified union that re-certified with the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission (WERC) for the calendar years 2017, 2018 and 2019 and;

Whereas, in keeping with the legal requirements of Act 10 the City may only bargain a base wage increase up to the consumer price index (CPI) established by the WERC with IATSE and;

Whereas, City employees working under the IATSE labor agreement are in compensation group 28 and;

Whereas, the bargained wage increase legally allowed under Act 10 is less than the wage increase provided to general municipal  employees in other compensation groups within the City and ;

Whereas, the City has a desire to provide equity to all wage increases to all compensation groups within the City and;

Whereas, this additional wage increase will make the total wage increase for City employees in compensation group 28 equitable;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Common Council approves and adopts a wage increase for employees in compensation group 28 of 1.10% effective the last pay period of 2018.
