The Fennimore Common Council has approved

pay hikes for city, electric utility workers. There

are seven employees who are represented by the

IBEW, the International Brotherhood of

Electrical Workers. Each will receive a pay

increase of 37-cents an hour.

The City of Fennimore has yet to reach an

agreement with the 14 other, unionized city

employees. There are a total of 10 who either

work for the Streets Department or in

Administration, along with four police officers.  

Two additional employees who work for the

Dwight Parker Library come under the

jurisdiction of the Library Board, and

will receive no pay increase for this year.
