Nonuniformed full-time workers in Sewickley Borough will receive a pay increase but also will pay more for health insurance under the terms of a new contract.

The three-year deal — retroactive to Jan. 1 — offers a 2.5-percent pay increase each year, borough manager Kevin Flannery said.

The contract also includes a 2.5-percentage-point increase in the amount workers are paying toward their health insurance, meaning, the seven full-time workers — in public works and administration — for the borough will pay 10 percent of their premiums instead of 7.5. New hires will contribute to their pension funds.

“That's a good change,” council member Tom DeFazio said of the pension funds.

Council members approved the contract in an 8-1 vote earlier this month. Robert Glenn, who negotiated on behalf of council, dissented.

“You have to make some tough decisions that aren't popular,” Glenn said of the contract.
