After a long negotiation process, Millcreek Township and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Union come to an agreement.
The AFSCME agreeing to concessions including increased contributions to their healthcare and reduced wage increases. They also created a new pay scale for all new employees at lower rates than the current employees. The changes could reduce projected cost increases by about $1 million over the next five years.
Township Supervisor John Morgan calling this a ‘selfless vote’ on the union’s part. That will help the township balance stark financial projections announced earlier in the week.
The AFSCME Union covers the township’s laborers, streets employees, and clerical support staff.
