The salaries and benefits for the City of Westminster’s employees – both full-time and part-time – are governed by separate memorandums of understanding and resolutions. In addition, compensation for the City’s elected officials is also governed by ordinance.
The City has two employee associations which officially represent the majority of full-time employees across all departments. In addition, there is a group of unrepresented employees in the Management, Administrative and Confidential group. The employee associations meet and confer with management on a regular basis to negotiate terms of their governing memorandums of understanding (MOU). The documents related to salary and benefits can be found by accessing the links below:
