Clark County Commission approves pay hikes for union employees

The Clark County Commission on Tuesday granted employees belonging to seven different unions cost-of-living pay hikes.

Combined, those pay increases add up to a $10.2 million fiscal impact for the county for the years the contracts are in place.

By and large, the new contracts give those county workers 2 percent pay increases, effective July 1. Salary and benefit changes are also given to non-union county workers who work in the same areas as the union employees.

Some of the bargaining agreements are for a single year, while others run for multiple years.

The Clark County Commission signed off on the following increases at Tuesday’s meeting:

*Clark County Defenders Union: a 2 percent pay increase effective July 1. The total associated cost is $361,642.

*Clark County Deputy Sheriff Association: the contract effective July 1 runs through June 30, 2019 and gives employees a 2 percent increase this year, and another 2 percent pay hike July 1, 2017. The total cost of the increases is $45,359.

*Clark County Prosecutor Association: a one-year contract calls for a 2 percent wage increase, effective July 1. The total cost of the increase to the county is $458,045.

*Service Employees International Union Local 1107: the County Commission authorized a 2 percent pay increase, effective July 1. The associated cost is $8.3 million.

*International Association of Firefighters Local 1908: a 1.5 percent increase and an additional vacation day per year, effective July 1, and another 2 percent pay increase July 1, 2017. Including the pay and vacation increases, that amounts to a $109,647 cost for the county.

*Juvenile Justice Supervisors Association: a 2 percent pay increase, effective July 1, which is a $75,142 cost to the county.

*Juvenile Justice Probation Officers Association: 2 percent pay increases on both July 1, and July 1, 2017, for a total cost to the county of $903,122.
