Effective April 23, 2006, for all represented employees, the County shall assume 20% of the employee’s retirement contributions. This pick-up of the employee’s retirement contributions will not reduce contributions required under Sections 34.2 or 35.2 above.

Effective the first full pay period of the agreement or the first day of first pay period following ratification and Board approval, whichever is later, the employer paid member contribution as described above will be eliminated. There shall be a salary increase of one percent (1%) for all employees, regardless of retirement plan or hire date, to offset the elimination of the employer paid member contribution to retirement.
