Fenske: Executive Wage Increase In-Line With Unionized Wage Increase

City Council will vote on a resolution Monday to approve a 1.5% wage increase for executive staff with the City of Thompson.


The resolution was originally on the agenda for the last meeting, but was delayed one month.


Fenske added that the resolution was moved to this meeting as not everyone would have been talking and voting from a position of knowledge when it was originally on the agenda in July.


Mayor Fenske explained that the increase is annually based on an agreement between the city and local unions, giving the executive staff the same increase as unionized workers.


He added that he finds it interesting people are vocally opposing the resolution which would cost a total of $25k, yet were also vocally opposed when Council proposed city employees taking an additional 10 days off which would have saved the city around $500k.
