The Tulsa County Budget Board will hold a special meeting Monday to consider giving most of the county’s nearly 2,000 full- and part-time employees a 2 percent pay increase.
County Commissioner and Budget Board Chairman John Smaligo said the overwhelming majority of county employees have not received a pay increase in nearly four years.
The pay increase would be effective Dec. 1 of this year.
The proposed salary increases would not apply to Tulsa City-County Library, Tulsa Health Department or Expo Square employees.
“I have worked closely with Tom Gerard, our fiscal director, to come up with a modest pay increase for those who have not received salary increases,” Smaligo said.
The commissioner said he would propose that employees whose salaries increased because of a promotion or reclassification be eligible for a raise. Those who have received performance-based pay increases in the past four years would not be eligible for the salary increases.
