Town of Catskill to consider thawing salaries

Salaries of Town of Catskill employees frozen over three years ago may soon be thawed, the Daily Mail reports today.

The town's human resources consulting form made the recommendations, citing wage and salary studies it conducted a few years ago.

Glenville-based Public Sector Human Resource Consultants President Ronnie Travers [...] said the step-plan salary position was accordingly implemented and that all were satisfied with it, adding, “It worked pretty good.”

Travers said the system was constructed so that it did not prevent the town from making decisions about personnel when they came on board or after, but basically implemented a system of uniformity and clarity for addressing pay increases and job reviews.

Travers addressed the issue with current board members, citing the potential for salary inequity and wage conflict in the future.
