Unity's nonunion workers to get 3 percent raises

Friday, July 12, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Unity supervisors approved a 3 percent wage increase for nonunion employees, a part of budgeted expenses.

Five township employees will receive increases that are annually reviewed, said Chairman Mike O'Barto.

He said supervisors overlooked giving the raises at the beginning of 2013.

“We got busy this winter, and we weren't able to actually vote on it,” O'Barto said.

The 3-percent increases were incorporated into the 2013 budget, he said.

Raises are retroactive to January, said supervisor Jake Blank. Full-time chief building inspector Merle Musick, building inspector Harry Hosack, zoning and ordinance officer Joann Dunn and building office secretary Sharon Sweeney each received raises.

Part-time zoning officer Chrystal Dunn also received a 3-percent raise.

“The nonunion employees that we have, especially our full-time people, do a magnificent job,” O'Barto said. “They keep their departments running, and the departments are quite healthy financially.”

Employee payroll accounts for a small percentage of the budget, which totaled $5.7 million in 2013, he said.

In other business, supervisors approved a conditional use and final site plan for a wholesale auto repair business.

The 1.5-acre property on Center Drive, zoned M-1 manufacturing, owned by Brian Grejtak is planned for repairs to cars that will be sold at an off-site auction or online.

Supervisors approved the plan provided no retail sales happen on the property and no cars remain stored outside for more than seven days in addition to complying with all other permits.

A final site plan for renovations of a building at Toyota of Greensburg was approved.

Three portions of the sales building will be renovated, and an in-house car wash will be added to the building owned.
