West Allis Proposes Tying Employees Raises to Revenue

Link to September 1 Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel article,

The union leadership in each of the five unions is recommending that members back the proposal.

Leaders of the police union, which took up the proposal after the other unions, have not yet taken a position but could schedule a vote by members later this month.

The proposal would base raises for 2011 on three factors:

• The city's income from its investments.

• The city's revenue from selling permits.

• The shared revenue the city receives from the state.

A formula would determine whether employees would get any raises and, if so, how much.

The city would pledge to keep staffing at current levels, with no layoffs or furloughs.

There is no truth to the rumor that officials considered changing their municipality's nickname to West Allis: City of Fines, Fees & Forfeitures.
