Birmingham merit pay raise meeting scheduled Tuesday

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Birmingham city employees will find out Tuesday if they will be getting any merit pay increases this year. The Mayor and City Councilors reached a compromise last week to include a bump in pay for firefighters and police officers.

Initially, there was contention over whether the city could afford the increases but some last-minute negotiations are changing that. Councilors will vote on the budget and the pay raises at their meeting Tuesday morning.
