Ventnor Ratifies Last of Five Union Contracts

During its most recent commission meeting in September, Ventnor City administration voted to ratify the last of five union contracts that have been in negotiation since the new administration took office in May, 2016. Given that the combined salaries of these five unions make up $12 million, or 40 percent, of the city’s $30 million operating budget, these negotiations were significant accomplishments. The city also approved other changes to salary guides, terminal leave at retirement and longevity that will also save money. The savings will also allow the city to consider capital improvements, such as upgrades to buildings and infrastructure.
