City Hall management salaries (continued)
This week they overwhelmingly voted down a city offer because it didn’t match provisions of non-management staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).
The organization behind the drive is the Professional Employees Trade Union (PETU), and the matter will now be heard by the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB).
The union drive began in 2006. The employees have been represented by a staff association and cannot strike.
Reasons for unionization are varied but have included quality of work life and job security. Most particularly the nascent union is upset that city hall has taken away retirement benefits for future hires, the same issue at the heart of this year’s prolonged CUPE strike.
The organizing drive is led by John Miceli, the city's manager of facility operations. He is paid, according to city hall’s non-union salary schedule, between $87,422.52 and $106,262.93. The position was created April 21, 2006.
Here is a list of some of the management job classifications and pay grades. Not necessarily every position would be in the union. There is more than 400 management staff.
