Halifax: Annual Town Meeting to consider pay hikes


According to Town Administrator Charles Seelig, the hottest topic on the May 14 Annual Town Meeting warrant is a proposal to grant nonunion employees 2 percent raises. The Wage and Personnel Board, which sets working conditions for nonunion workers, has recommended the pay increases. The Finance Committee, however, does not plan to recommend the 2 percent increase, Seelig said. Voters will also consider raises for union employees under new contracts, Seelig said, since negotiations are expected to be complete on at least some of those by the time Town Meeting opens.
