The Sarasota County Commission this morning ended an impasse with Teamsters Local 173.

Commissioners voted 4-1 to approve a 3% raise retroactive to Oct.1, and $1,000 lump-sum payments for 419 Teamsters bargaining unit employees, and earmarked $1.2 million to pay for the adjustments. The budget amendment will also cover employer-paid benefits.

The Teamsters filed for impasse with the Public Employees Relations Commission In March, citing issues with the county over pay and holiday leave, among other issues.
