Employees of Metro Nashville government rallied in front of
the Metro Courthouse Tuesday night as city council members prepared to
hear public comments on their proposed pay raises.
The group of roughly 100 police, fire, service union members and supporters gathered to cheer the efforts to get Metro employees more pay following years of budget cuts and layoffs.
On Monday, the Civil Service Commission approved a pay plan put forth by Mayor Karl Dean. The plan includes a 1.5% pay raise for all Metro employees and restores so-called increment raises. (link)
