Sheriff’s officials get raises

Bargaining groups representing deputies and management in the Sheriff’s Office will receive a 22 percent increase in pay over five years under a new contract approved by county supervisors.

Two bargaining units, the Deputy Sheriff’s Association and the Sheriff’s Management Association, reached agreements that will begin July 1 and end June 30, 2013, said human resources director Gayle Satchwell.

Though it has agreed to raise the worker’s wages, the county said it will save money by eliminating county health-care contributions for retirement for any workers hired after July 1.

Existing retirees will not be affected by the changes, Satchwell said.

“They will no longer have the county’s health contribution. The county believes this will be a significant savings in the future,” Satchwell said.

Each month, the county pays between $105 to $506 in health care contributions per retiree, Satchwell said.

The county has 800 retirees on its books, Satchwell said.
