|This graph, provided by ECSO, shows Entry Deputy Annual Salary has increased 53% and that some sort of salary augmentation has been given to employees in all but 4 of the last 18 years.|
Attachment 13 of the binder containing the documents associated with the ECSO's appeal of their 2017-2018 budget is entitled "Time Line of ECSO Raises." There is a lot of interesting data that can be gleaned from just this one tab. As I go through the binder this weekend ahead of Monday morning's strategy meeting of the BCC, I find myself coming back to attachment 13. What does it show? There is dissonance between what has been stated and what this document shows.....
----For the period from 2000-2018, Base Pay for deputies has increased roughly 53% from the year 2000 starting pay level
----This equates to an average annual base pay increase of nearly 3% per year to the starting pay for "Entry Deputy"in this time frame
----Some form of pay raise or salary increase has been given to ECSO personnel in all but four (4) of the last 18 years--according to this chart provided by ECSO.
----Although ECSO personnel have stated to me that deputies have gone "7 years without raises" --the graph provided by ECSO does not corroborate that statement..It clearly disputes this assertion. What seven years?
