City staff to receive pay increase

  • Feb. 9, 2011 4:34 p.m.

City council addressed the salaries of management staff at Monday night’s council meeting by approving a 2.9% increase with an effective date of Jan. 1, 2011.

The increase affects 130 non-union employees, a group that includes the City manager, directors, managers, superintendents, supervisors, professionals and specialists.

Salary scales for non-union staff are reviewed annually and adjusted dependent on a number of factors including adjustments provided to larger local employers and other municipal organizations across the province.

“Given the potential for economic recovery in Central Alberta in 2011, we need to take a balanced approach in determining non-union employees’ salary adjustment so we can continue to attract and retain qualified management staff to serve the public well,” said Marge Wray, the City’s human resources manager.

The 2011 adjustment is reflective of the economic realities in Alberta.
