BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:
RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the specifications for the civil service classification of solid waste compliance officer, which were approved by the civil service board on May 4, 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 25, pay rate of $2,704 to $3,190. 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 solid waste compliance officer 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 proposal 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 25 of the city’s collective bargaining agreement with its basic unit employees.
