Pay hikes for employees on agenda

THE HUNTINGTON BEACH City Council will meet on Monday at 5 p.m. and will consider pay increases for three employee groups (Shutterstock).

Three labor agreements with employment organizations will be taken up at Monday’s meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council.

In consideration of the coronavirus crisis, some members of the council and/or city staff may participate in the meeting by telephone or electronically.

The agreement with the Huntington Beach Police Officers’ Association calls for a general base salary increase – retroactive to Jan. 1, 2020 – of 4 percent in the first year of the agreement, then 3.5 percent in the second year and 3.5 percent in the third year.

For the city’s Management Employees Organization, a 3.5 percent pay increase is called for in the period of Nov. 1, 2019 through Oct. 31, 2020. The same pay hike of 3.5 percent for the Huntington Beach Municipal Teamsters, for the same time period, will also be considered.

Also on the agenda are reports from City Manager Oliver Chi on the city’s response plan for the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and actions for review and discussion, and on the Ascon landfill site near Edison High School.

The council will meet starting at 5 p.m. and will be recorded live from its chambers at 2009 Main St, (at Yorktown Avenue).
