Mayor Says He’ll Abide by DWP Pay Decision

On the eve of a City Council vote on controversial pay raises for Department of Water and Power workers, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Monday he would abide by any decision.

The package would increase the salaries of nearly 8,000 DWP workers by at least 17% over five years and possibly by as much as 34%, depending on inflation.

“It’s in the council’s court,” the mayor said. “They are going to make a decision. When they do, I will support that decision, whatever it is.”
