City of Canyon Lake approves three-year contract with Canyon Lake Firefighters Association

The City of Canyon Lake approved a three-year contract with the Canyon Lake Firefighters Association (CLFA).

After the city’s negotiation team met and conferred with the CLFA Board regarding compensation and related benefits for the represented employees, city council approved the following terms: A three-year agreement beginning July 1, 2024, with a 10% increase for all represented members on the first pay period on or after July 1, 2024, a 3.5% cost of living adjustment for all represented members on the first pay period on or after July 1, 2025, and a 3.5% cost of living adjustment for all represented members on the first pay period on or after July 1, 2026.

As of the first pay period on or after July 1, 2024, all work-down obligations will be removed and any policies will be updated. Any individual working in an overtime capacity will maintain their current pay for that overtime. If additional revenue is formally approved, such as the current Citizen Initiative Sales Tax, at the written request from the CLFA to the City of Canyon Lake (city manager), both parties agree to reopen negotiations two times during the term of this contract for the sole purpose to discuss items related to wages.

The total estimated fiscal impact for the fiscal year 2024-25 compared to the fiscal year 2023-24 budgeted amounts is $137,728.

Founded in 2022, the CLFA has gone through the defined process to be certified by PERB. On January 23, 2024, the CLFA was recognized by the city as the representative of the firefighters, firefighters/paramedics, engineers, and captains (full-time, non-management sworn personnel) employed within the Canyon Lake Fire Department. Additionally, the city adopted Resolution 2024-11 on April 10, 2024, adopting a framework for employer-employee relations. This allowed the city to recognize the CLFA as a Collective Bargaining Unit and to begin the meet and confer process.
