BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:
RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the pay range for the civil service classification of city architect are approved; that said classification shall remain subject to the city’s collective bargaining agreement with this supervisory unit employees, that the pay range will change from Pay Range 1135 to pay ranges 1115-1135. 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: Over the past several years, the trend has been to expand the pay ranges for supervisory unit positions to allow pay to be tied to education, experience and performance. The pay rate negotiated by management and the City of Duluth Supervisory Association (CDSA) for this classification are pay ranges 1115 to 1135, pay rate of $5,277 to $7,075 per month. This is a change from Pay Range 1135, pay rate of $,5802 to $7,075.
