LAKE WORTH — As expected, the City Commission Tuesday night unanimously approved a two-year contract for two unions that includes a 4 percent raise retroactive to Oct. 1.

The Professional Managers and Supervisors Association and the Public Employees Union have been working without a contract since October.

Both unions voted in favor of the contract this past week. PEU voted 56 to 1, while the PMSA’s vote was unanimous, 14-0.

Now the sides get back to the bargaining table to hammer out a pension plan solution.
