Openings on Wage & Personnel Board

The Wage and Personnel Board oversees working conditions for all of the town's non-union employees. It is a five member appointed board and members are appointed in the following manner: two by the Advisory Board, two by the Selectmen and one by the Town Moderator.

The Board's goal is to develop and administer a plan that governs wages paid and certain benefits provided to Town employees that are not employed by contract or pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement. The Board is responsible for providing guidance as to how the plan operates and for the fair and consistent interpretation of the plan.

The Wage and Personnel Board typically holds one or two regular monthly meetings. The Board is proactive, meeting with department heads, other boards and Town employees to update job descriptions and discuss questions or concerns regarding the Wage Plan. The Board is required to conduct a public hearing and submit their recommendations regarding any amendments and changes to the plan to Annual Town Meeting.

The Wage and Personnel Board currently has three vacancies (one to be appointed by the Moderator and two by the Advisory Board). Human Resources experience would be beneficial. If you are interested in serving Bridgewater in this capacity, please send a letter of interest by January 30th to the Selectmen's Office c/o Lisa Sullivan, 25 South Street, Bridgewater, MA 02324 or via email at lsullivan@bridgewaterma.org.
