City strikes deal with largest union

Posted:

The city of Sioux City has negotiated a new contract agreement with it's largest union.

The American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, or AFSME, represents 50% of workers at city hall, from clerical staff to field services, and the airport.

The new three-year contact includes a two-percent cost of living raise, but also increased employee contributions to their health insurance.

"It's a very fair for our employees, it's a very fair contract for the city, and the citizens.  It gives us some stability for the next three years to be able to do budgeting rather than have to do it on a one-year basis," said  Mayor Bob Scott.

The City Council still has to vote on the new contract, Monday.
