City of Richmond TA Summary and Vote Schedule
With Job Classification Attachment A


The elected Bargaining Team has reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) for our contract re-opener on the classification and compensation study. Our Bargaining Team recommends a ‘YES’ vote. The vote schedule is below.

TA Summary

There will be a 4% raise effective the pay period which includes July 1, 2023. The raise is for both full-time and part-time units.

This is in addition to the raises in the contract which are 5% January 1, 2023, 4% January 1, 2024, and 4% effective January 1, 2025.

Equity Adjustments:

The changes to job description and equity adjustments affects the full-time unit only. Currently, the Union has submitted all job description changes to the City. Once the City has competed their review and the Union has checked the City’s changes, the City will send and recommend to approve the new Job descriptions to the Personnel Board. Once the Personnel Board has adopted the new job descriptions the City will recommend and send the equity adjustment changes to the City Council. The Union and the City will meet Bi-weekly to make sure this process is moving forward.

The equity adjustments for the General Employees Unit will be implemented the first full pay period following City Personnel Board adoption of the Job Description changes.

The City will implement the Compensation Study by placing employees in the proposed grade for their job classification as stated in Attachment A (posted to our website at Job classifications receiving an equity adjustment will be placed in the range reflecting the value of the equity adjustment recommended by Segal. Job classifications that do not receive an equity adjustment will remain in their current salary range. Individual employees will be placed at a step within their salary range that is most similar to their current range that does not cause a reduction in base wage.
