The City of Omaha’s civilian employees and their pension are about to receive a $6 million payment, pending a vote by the Omaha City Council.
The council is set to vote Tuesday on back pay for employees covered by recently approved contracts. The $6 million will go toward 2014 raises and increased pension contributions.
The changes were negotiated in contracts that became official toward the end of 2014 but which covered the whole calendar year.
The city’s portion of pension payments rose for the city’s largest civilian union. That was one of several measures intended to pay down the civilian pension’s shortfall.
