@netransplant: The employees don't HAVE to do anyting. Just have Management say "take the promotion and the pay cut, or not." They will say "NOT!" The City will advertise for someone to come in and fill the job and then you and I and the rest of the City can move on. What's the big deal? The employees did not create this ridiculous situation, MANAGEMENT did!

I believe the goal is to pay at the 75th percentile, not the 25th percentile. The 25th percentile would be at the bottom of the comparable market range.

With a handful of employees working "out of title" for years, and then complaining they would take a pay cut if they move into that position for real I say so what. These few employees should accept there long term temporary increases and either take the job at what it pays or get out of the way and let the city hire someone else. And who says they are the best candidates? Were they promised jobs that should be posted for applications? Is there favoritism going on? The city manager must grow a pair and make a decision.
