County workers get second pay raise in 7 months

Union agreement calls for 2% hike

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Levy County employees will have a little something extra in their paychecks shortly: a 2 percent pay increase that the County Commission approved dating back to Oct. 1, 2013. That’s on top of the 3 percent pay increase approved in June.

The increase came about as a result of union negotiations between the county and the Florida Public Employees Local 630 of Laborers' International Union of North America, AFL-CIO, which represents all county employees, except the full time emergency medical service employees in the Public Safety Department, and employees in the constitutional officers' office. 

County Coordinator Fred Moody said the latest increase, part of a “Memorandum of Understanding” signed with the union on Dec. 17, 2013, is on top of a 3 percent raise granted by the commission in June 2013. Moody said the retroactive amount may be in the Jan. 16 checks.
