City will ask unions for wage freezes

-A A +A

Alternative is furloughs and layoffs

By Rich Bauer, Managing Editor

In hopes of avoiding layoffs and furlough days, Vandalia officials will be asking city employees to agree to wage freezes for six months.

After meeting in closed session for close to an hour on Monday, the city council agreed to take proposals for wage increases to the unions representing the city’s laborers, police officers and telecommunicators.

The city has prepared memorandums of understanding for the pay freezes, which would run from May 1-Oct. 31, and Mayor Rick Gottman said the city will attempt to set up a meeting with the union representatives.
