(Louisville, KY) - Metro Government is hoping immediate pay raises will help attract and retain Louisville Metro Corrections officers.
Mayor Greg Fischer, Metro Corrections and the union representing the officers announced a tentative deal Wednesday. It would boost the starting pay for new corrections officers to just over $44,000 annually, while all sworn officers would get an eight-percent raise.
The yet to be approved contract also includes improved accountability for Corrections employees.
