Horsham Approves Contract for Township Staff
The Horsham Township Council approved a three-year contract for the roughly 30 township employees.
Horsham's police dispatchers, secretaries, clerks, highway department and public works employees will earn 2 percent more in the new year under a three-year contract that the Horsham Township Council approved recently.
In all, approximately 30 employees - who are part of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union - will receive 2 percent pay increases each of the three years of the contract, which spans Jan. 1, 2013, through Dec. 31, 2015, according to Horsham Township Manager Bill Walker.
Under the contract, Walker said the township would no longer pay supplemental workers compensation pay. In addition, he said the probation period for this pool of employees has been changed from six months to 12 months.
