Council will vote on Teamster contract

Published 6:09am Monday, October 21, 2013

The Fergus Falls City Council will vote Monday on a resolution to approve a 3 percent wage increase for 2014 as part of the Teamster labor agreement, according to Brenda Cossette, city human resources director.

The labor agreement also includes health insurance adjustments. The city contribution to health insurance for a family will go from $887 to $924, and from $469 to $477 for singles.

It’s the same increases that the council approved earlier this month in the labor contracts for police officers and police sergeants for 2014.

The council will have one more contract to approve, the supervisor professional at the next meeting, according to Cossette.

In other business, the council:

• Will get an update on the Woodland Heights water main route study.

• Vote on a resolution to approve the donation of a fishing pier from the Otter Risers Kiwanis Club to be placed at the levee.

The council will meet at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 in the City Council Chambers.
