Compensation Review

As we approach the end of 2020, we are preparing to enter into bargaining again early next year.  It is vital that we have accurate compensation comparison data and we need every member’s help with that!  As a reminder, there are five “comparable” counties that are used when discussing market wages: Marion, Washington, Jackson, Deschutes, and Clackamas.  We are asking each of you to help by completing the attached spreadsheet for your job classification.  A link to both job descriptions as well as pay rates for Lane County and each of the five comparable counties is included in the spreadsheet.  We are asking that you list your job classification and pay rates at Lane County and then find your comparable job classification and min/max hourly rate in each of the five comparable counties.  If you work in a classification that can be found in multiple departments and divisions at Lane County (e.g. Office Assistant) please also list your department/division in your Lane County classification title.  When you are done, you can email the spreadsheet to: [email protected]

A few important notes:

  • Select the job classification that most accurately matches your duties for each county (even though it may have a different name.) 
  • You may not be able to find a comparable position in EVERY county- that is okay!
  • If you have specific questions about your classification for the market review, please reach out to: [email protected]
