Wyoming Reaches Contracts with Employee Union

Wyoming Reaches Contracts with Employee Union

The City of Wyoming has reached a tentative labor agreement with its largest employee union.
 
The four-year agreement with 170 members of the Wyoming City Employees Union is the third successive contract for this bargaining unit that has included significant concessions from the employees.  While the agreement gives employees minor raises over the next four years, it still provides the City with savings of approximately 20 percent over the term of the contract.
 
 “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with our largest employee union,” said City Manager Curtis Holt.  “While things are slightly better economically today than they were when we negotiated the contract in 2009, we are still unsure of what the future holds.  For example, changes in property tax legislation could affect our budget’s bottom line.
