Wellston Council approves labor contracts to end year
City and OSCEA employees receive wage hikes; Engineer declines raise

Associate Editor

As 2017 begins, as do a number of labor contracts in the City of Wellston. The legislative measures pertaining to these contracts were addressed and adopted during Wellston City Council's final meeting for 2016.

Resolutions 2016-139, 2016-140, and 2016-143, which involve the execution of contracts between the city and City Engineer Tim Wojdacz, the full-time employees of the Wellston Fire Department (WFD), and the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association (OCSEA) Chapter 4010, respectively, were all unanimously adopted in emergency fashion during a special meeting of Wellston Council on the night of Tuesday, Dec. 27.

In 2017, all city and OCESA employees will receive a 1.75 percent raise with the exception of Wojdacz, who reportedly declined the wage hike according to Mayor Connie Pelletier. Wojdacz's contract will run from Jan. 1 of this year through Dec. 31 2018, at a salary of $55,000 per year.

The WFD Chief, First Assistant Chief, and Second Assistant Chief are those defined as full-time employees of that department. The salaries for those positions for 2017 are $47,390; $45,354; and $43,319, respectively. The three-year contract approved at last month's special meeting will be reopened for negotiations on Jan. 1, 2019.

The three-year contract between the city and the OSCEA union will run through Dec. 31, 2019. Positions and offices covered under this contract include the city clerk, water treatment, waste water treatment, water & sewer distribution, streets & sanitation, and the cemetery, with pay rates ranging from $17.26 to $19.23 per hour for 2017.
