Non-union workers may get pay increases too
An arbitrator's ruling that lifts a wage freeze for county nursing home union employees prompted St. Croix County's Finance Committee to recommend lifting the freeze on non-union workers' pay too.
On July 12 the committee voted to urge the County Board to give 20 non-union nursing home workers the same raises the county's other non-union employees got. Those increases are 1.5% for 2006 and 2.5% for 2007. The matter is expected to come to the board for a vote Aug. 7.
