Genesee Community College's clerical, housekeeping, security, and buildings and grounds members of the GCC Educational Support Personnel Association will receive a total 11 percent pay hike over the term of a four-year contract approved Wednesday by the Genesee County Legislature.
The pact -- with 2.75 percent annual increases -- will affect about 80 of the college's 210 faculty, staff and employees.
The agreement, effective Sept. 1, provides minor changes in the employee share of health care benefits, and offers stipends of $275 in the first two years and $325 in the remaining years of the pact. The cost is included in the college's current budget.
The legislature also enacted a law tightening recycling regulations, to separate reusable materials from solid waste. A public hearing Wednesday drew no comments.
