BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:
RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the specifications for the civil service classification of housing inspector leadworker, which were approved by the civil service board on December 7, 2004, and which are filed with the city clerk as Public Document No. _________, are approved; that said classification shall remain subject to the city’s collective bargaining agreement with its basic unit employees, that the pay range will change from Pay Range 31, pay rate of $3,470 to $4,127 per month to Pay Range 32, pay rate of $3,626 to $4,311. The proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement an agreement with the union to provide for employing one or more unit members consistent with this resolution.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The housing inspector leadworker job description was revised in 2004. Because the city and the union were unable to agree on a negotiated wage, both parties submitted their wage proposals to wage mediation in accordance with Article 44.2 of the basic union contract. The mediator’s award recommended that pay for the classification be set at Pay Range 32 of city’s collective bargaining agreement with its basic unit employees.
