City Union Approves New Contract

DC 33 members will get several raises.

As expected, the city’s largest municipal union approved a new contract with City Hall on Tuesday. District Council 33 has 9,000 members, whose contract runs through 2016.

Newsworks reports: “The workers will receive a $2,800 signing bonus, as well as a 3.5 percent raise this month and a 2.5 percent raise in July.”

The contract is retroactive to 2009, when the previous contract expired.
