Salary Contingency

City of Somerville FY21 Budget

The Salary Contingency funds collective bargaining agreement settlements, salary adjustments not budgeted in departmental accounts, cost of-living allowances, staffing for temporary vacancies, and benefits for both union and non-union employees. Some of the most common benefits are sick-leave buybacks, vacation payouts, and perfect attendance allowances. The City also maintains a Wage and Salary Stabilization Fund for similar purposes.
