For the first time ever all of the employees under the Butler County commissioners control, union and non-union alike, have pay-for-performance provisions.

The Child Support Enforcement Agency Independent Union and the commissioners last week ratified a new deal with pay guidelines that mirror that for non-union employees. The new deal calls for a two percent hike to base pay and two percent incentive pay to be doled out on a quarterly basis for the first year.

“The approval of the CSEA contract represents a milestone in that the board now has performance pay in place for every single employee that works for them,” Administrator Charlie Young said.

In years two and three the base pay component will be within a range of one to three percent based on performance and the two percent incentive pay allocation.
