Union City, GA (April 3, 2020) – During an emergency called meeting scheduled at 11:00 a.m., April 3, Mayor and Council adopted a resolution for frontline city employees to receive a temporary hazard pay supplement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those receiving the pay supplement include certain public safety and public services employees.

The supplement will be in effect for the months of March, April, May, and June 2020 so long as the local public health state of emergency remains in existence for that duration. If the local state of public health emergency is terminated prior to June 30, 2020, the temporary hazard pay supplement will end simultaneously. 

Eligible employees in both the Union City Police Department and the Union City Fire Department will receive five hundred dollars ($500.00) per month.  Those who are eligible in the public services category will receive two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) per month.  A majority of these individuals hold laborer positions within Public Works and Parks and Recreation.

The Resolution will remain in effect until June 30, 2020, or until extended, rescinded, superseded or amended by the Mayor and Council of Union City.
