General wage increases will continue to be tied to the Portland CPI-W. Upon ratification, the COPPEA bargaining unit members will receive a wage increase of 0.9% starting on July 1, 2013. Wage increases based on the Portland CPI-W formula, provides for a minimum increase of 1% with a maximum increase of 5% adjusted on July 1 of each year of the Agreement.

11. Upon ratification of the Agreement, the City will, through its Bureaus, fund a Professional Development Fund for the COPPEA represented employees each year of the Agreement.

 

12. The terms and conditions of the Agreement shall be reduced to a successor collective bargaining agreement that shall conform substantially in accordance with the Exhibit A (the 2013-2017 CBA).
