Any changes to the 2019 pay scale for these affected positions will be paid to the affected employees from October 1, 2019 to the end of the payroll year. The annual wage increases described in 23-177 for 2020 and 2021 apply to the affected CMPTEC positions, unless otherwise agreed upon by City and CMPTEC.

When the City of Omaha hires or promotes an employee into a CMPTEC bargaining unit position, the City shall notify and provide the employee the right to join CMPTEC and shall also notify CMPTEC that such employee was hired or promoted into a CMPTEC bargaining unit position.
