FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The Fairbanks City Council will reconsider a union contract proposal it rejected last month.

The three-year contract with city office workers and managers includes a 2.5 percent pay and benefit increase this year and a 2 percent raises over each of the next two years.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://is.gd/RdL2ph ) the council rejected the contract last month, but will take another look Monday.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is one of four unions that have contracts with the city. The 42 city workers organized under IBEW include mostly City Hall office workers, including departmental heads and administrative assistants.

An official with IBEW Local 1547 tells the newspaper the city administration agreed to put it up for another vote after further discussions with the union.
