Economic Stability Dividend
Extra Pay Raise in 2016 for Residents!
To supplement the salary increases that were gained during the last round of bargaining, our Bargaining Team also negotiated for a GDP tie-in via the “Economic Stability Dividend”:
“Employees will receive a general wage increase (GWI) equal to one half (1/2) of any percentage gain in real GDP above forecast of the Economic Forecast Council for the relevant calendar year.”
– Section 3, MOA Re: Economic Stability Dividend
We are excited to announce that since our economy did better than expected last year, residents will be able to take advantage of the dividend and will receive an additional pay increase of 0.45% in February 2016. Read a news article here.
