Letter: Most can only dream of municipal wages, benefits

Editor: Are our property taxes perhaps facing a large increase due to the fact  Langley Township  municipal workers’ contract is once again up for renewal and probably currently in negotiations?

This union has enjoyed substantial wage increases over the last 10 years and have a  benefit/pension plan that most of can only dream of.

A cashier at a recreation centre currently enjoys a wage of between $20.21 to $23.61 — very generous pay for what the job entails, in my humble opinion.

Municipal governments have not been reining in wage increases and benefits like the provincial and federal governments have.

It’s time for Langley Township to do the same.
