EMS Contract and wage parity among Austin public safety workers. The last compensation analysis showed EMS is 19% below the market average. The subject public safety portion of the general fund is an ongoing topic. While this amount is about 67% for public safety, EMS is only 6.4% of general fund or approx. 4% net. Do you support the current tentative EMS contract and distinguishing relative public safety spending in future discussions of council?
