Commissioner Jenny Brown’s analysis of the Workers Association 4 year proposed contract is set out in separate blog. It is not clear to me the effect of voting Wednesday or postponing the vote. Frankly, I had thought this was a done deal but it seems not.
Alicia Glide of Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood Patch reports:
” The Lower Merion Township Board of Commissioners’ Administrative and Resources Committee voted Wednesday night to delay a discussion and action on whether to recommend approval of a four-year labor contract with the Workers Association, the township’s employee union.
The Workers Association, which represents 206 township non-uniform employees, ratified the proposed labor contract for 2011-2014 on July 28 “by a reported ‘very close vote,’” Township Manager Doug Cleland wrote in a public memorandum to the commissioners.”
Cheryl Allison of Main Line News provides a similar report with details on the actual contract:
“As proposed, the contract provides lump-sum payments of $1,300 for full-time employees and $300 for part-time employees in 2011 and pay increases of 2.5 percent, 2.75 percent and 2.75 percent in subsequent years.
Terms of the agreement are described in detail in a Main Line Media News report here: http://www.mainlinemedianews.com/articles/2011/08/03/mainlinetimes/news/doc4e331de945e61493329732.txt.”
