SUBJECT
Title
Adopt a Resolution Amending the City's Salary Resolution and the Schedule of Pay to Increase the Salary Ranges for Unclassified Department Director Positions (Pay Plan Category F) Effective July 12, 2020

Report
BACKGROUND
Unclassified department directors (pay plan category F) are at-will employees, appointed by the City Manager. They are not organized and do not negotiate for any changes to their wages, hours, and/or other terms and conditions of employment. Instead, the City Manager makes recommendations to the City Council regarding such changes on behalf of this employee group.

In September 2017, a new compensation program was approved by the Council (RTC No. 17-0872), that adjusted salary ranges for department director classifications to address gender equality pay, attract talent, retain highly qualified employees, and to resolve salary compaction with bargaining unit represented positions. With the salary increases other bargaining units will receive in July, the salary ranges of department directors will become out of alignment with the compensation program and philosophy that was adopted by Council in 2017. In September 2019, the program was amended to include the classification of Deputy City Manager.

This report recommends adjustments to the salary ranges for unclassified department director classifications (pay plan category F) to maintain a consistent differential with bargaining unit represented positions.
