Mahoning commissioners approve several contracts Thursday

YOUNGSTOWN — Several labor union contracts for Mahoning County government workers remained in limbo until today as the decisive election concerning public employee collective-bargaining rights loomed ahead next week, and some are still in limbo.

The county commissioners today approved three-year contracts for workers in the county engineer’s office, 911 center, child support enforcement agency and recycling, building inspection and microfilm departments.

None of the contracts feature any pay increases, and all require a 10 percent employee contribution to health-care premiums.

Employer payments of the employee share of retirement contributions range from full payment in the engineer’s office to none in the 911 center.

All the contacts were ratified by the union workers before the commissioners approved them.

Departments still in labor negotiations with other bargaining units are the Department of Job and Family Services, auditor’s office, and recorder’s office.
