City reviews management salaries

Municipality plans to conduct ‘comprehensive’ salary and benefits review of non-union staff members

Francis Cheung

The City of Langley is planning to review the pay and benefits it provides to non-union staff to see if the municipality is keeping up with other communities.

“The review will aid the City in attracting and retaining well qualified staff and maintaining competitive compensation practices with those of comparable municipalities” said a City request for professional service proposals posted on the BC Bid website.

Whoever wins the contract will compare pay levels and benefits packages for all “exempt” staff not covered by the current union contract.

City CAO Francis Cheung told the Times the review is usually carried out every three to five years.

The last review, in 2010, found the City rates were generally competitive, with the exception of some “minor adjustments” to two positions, Cheung said.

Details cannot be disclosed because it is a personnel matter, he said.

Township Human Resources director Shannon Harvey-Renner said the larger municipality’s last salary review was conducted in 2014 and resulted in adjustments to two “pay bands” affecting a number of non-union staff.
