WINNIPEG – A plan to make how city employees get paid more transparent has cleared a hurdle at city hall.
Mayor Brian Bowman and EPC have unanimously approved the idea of beefing up the city’s so called “compensation disclosure”.
It’s a list that shows how much city employees make each year, provided they earn a salary of $50,000 or more.
The idea is to break that down from now on to show things like overtime pay, vacation pay and any severance pay outs.
It’s been inspired partly by former city Chief Operation Officer, Deepak Joshi, making more than $500,000 last year even though he was suspended in January and resigned a month later.
The plan still needs approval from full city council.
