EVERETT — The Snohomish County Council on Monday approved new labor agreements with sheriff’s deputies and their managers, nearly two years after the old contracts expired.
The new contract is retroactive to April 1, 2015. It’s set to run through March 2019.
Under the terms, deputies are set to receive a 3.25 percent pay increase for the first year of the contract and 3 percent for the second year. The final two years would be based on the Consumer Price Index for this region, but cannot fall below 2 percent.
The Deputy Sheriff’s Association represents 265 employees and the Sheriff’s Office Management Team 16 employees.
The contracts include a cost-sharing arrangement for medical increases for employees hired after the ratification date. The agreement with deputies includes a provision to hire civilian employees for some duties.
