The town of Yarmouth’s Middle Managers (Unit B) has OK’d a new contract that includes cost-of-living raises of 5.5 percent spread over three years. In addition, the new pact improves on bereavement leave and increases vacation days for the more senior members. Also: Employees who have been enrolled in the town’s health plan for at least one year may become eligible to opt out of taking that insurance — and get a stipend from the town in compensation.
“The negotiating team really did a great job,” said field representative Joan Caruso. “All told, the package is quite favorable for Local 888 members.” The 20-odd middle managers work in a variety of departments, with jobs ranging from golfing director to head of the board of health.
