Alexandria City Council To Hear Employee Pay Increase Proposal

A compensation increase for Alexandria city government employees will be considered at Tuesday's City Council meeting as public safety unions have called for more competitive pay. According to a memo from City Manager Mark Jinks, the proposed 1.5 percent pay rate increase was originally proposed in the fiscal year 2021 budget. According to patch.com, "Now City Council will consider that 1.5 percent pay rate increase for the rest of fiscal year 2022 and future years. A one-time $1,000 bonus would also be provided to all eligible full-time city and state-paid employees. Part-time employees would receive a prorated bonus. Per the memo, Jinks considered recommending the $1,000 bonus be contingent on providing proof of vaccination. However, that recommendation was dropped due to a legal review from the city attorney's office. A COVID-19 vaccination requirement goes into effect on Oct. 25 for city government employees, and those who haven't submitted vaccination records will undergo weekly testing. To date, Jinks noted 76 percent of employees filed proof of vaccination." As per patch.com, "The city manager also received backlash from IUPA Local 5 and IAFF Local 2141 for providing numbers from a 2019 benchmark study on pay competitiveness to City Council with the proposal. The organizations found a 2020 benchmark study was completed, providing more recent data on pay competitiveness. The memo from Jinks acknowledged the proposal will not achieve a goal of average pay compared with other jurisdictions for all city pay scales."
