(AP Wire- photo) NEWS WHILE IT IS NEWS IN THE TIMES Little Rock Adopts New Pay Plan, Wages Up 12 Per Cent LITTLE ROCK CAP) -- The .ittle Rock Board of Directors dopted a new pay plan Tues- «y night that will give all 1,250 ily employes pay raises aver- ging 12.1 per cent beginning Oct. 28. The increase will add $1,218,84 to the city's annual payroll if $11 million and will be fi- lanced from federal revenue liaring funds and unspent operational funds from the 1974 mdget. Later Tuesday night, a"bout 00 members of Loral 34 of the nternational Association of Firefighters ended their own meeting with the traditional humbs-down gesture of dis approval. "The men were very upset and displeased.," said Capt. John Uekman, president of Local 34, "We are real dissatisfied with the raises we did get." Uekman said the firefighters did not take any formal action at the meeting other than to show unanimous displeasure with the board's action. "We are settin g up committees to study further ac :ion," Uekman said. "Past this, L just don't know," Asked if the committees in eluded a strike committee or il the possibility of a strike was discussed, Uekman . replied "No comment." The new pay plan did not in elude any provision for grant ing firemen equal pay with po Hcemen, as the [iremen have demanded. The plan gives greater per centage increases to employe; vith lower salaries,'but It was dopted with two board mem- icrs insisting that the raises or low-income workers Were nsufficient. Union representatives made imilar statements, indicating hat the plan may not solve the abor problems that apparently ipeeded its adoption. The pay of a Fire Depart ment hoseman wilh about three years' experience would be in creased by 12.7 per cent, from $688 a month to $775 a month. The pay of. Fire Department drivers and Police Departmen patrolmen with about three years' experience would rise 'rom $763 to $857 a month, at ncrease of 12.3 per cent. The $16-a-month raise tha the city's lowest-paid employe: ivould get under the plan wa: 'really paltry," Jeane Lambie president of State Council 38 o the American Federation o State. County and Municipa Employes, said. "I thought you weren't going to shaft us, but you did," sh told .City Manager Carletoi McMullin after the board mee: ing.
