Town wages hiked 2 per cent

Town of Fort Erie employees will receive two per cent wage increases each year for three years in a collective agreement approved by Town council Monday night.

The deal was reached after a meeting between between the parties and a provincially-appointed conciliation officer last week.

Union membership approved the contract with a 96 per cent ratification vote. Town council approved it in a registered vote with councillor Bob Steckley being the lone dissenter. Councillor Stephen Passero was absent.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees represents approximately 80 of the Town’s 130 employees. Their contract had expired on Dec. 31, 2013.

Non-union employees, including management, supervisory and other staff as well as firefighters, will receive the same increases, said acting chief administrative officer Tom Kuchyt.
