Key Issues:

The proposed agreement continues to provide "step plans" for IAM positions as was the case in the prior agreement. Pay ranges for the represented positions have increased from the previous agreement, and the number of steps reduced in an effort to be more competitive in the market. The proposed agreement also incorporates additional levels or classification within certain positions to allow for additional promotion opportunities once certain skills and certifications are attained.

* Two new Utility Foreman classifications within the Water Utility Department
* Creating a Meter Technician I and Meter Technician II classification (previously was only Meter Technician) within the Water Utilities Department
* Creating a Mechanic I, Mechanic II and Mechanic III classification (previously was only Mechanic) within the Fleet Division

In addition, the number of Senior Operator positions within Public Works Operations would be increased from a previous maximum of five to a maximum of seven under the proposed agreement.
