Mayor Asks Employees To Give Up Raises
COLUMBUS, Ohio Columbus is the capital and the largest city of the American state of Ohio. Named for explorer Christopher Columbus, the city was founded in 1812 at the confluence of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers, and assumed the functions of state capital in 1816. — Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman Michael Coleman may mean:
- Michael Coleman (musician), an Irish-American musician and fiddle player.
- Michael B. Coleman, current mayor of Columbus, Ohio and former 2006 Ohio gubernatorial candidate.
In a letter to unions on Wednesday, Coleman detailed his need to cut $13 million in order to balance the city’s budget. He said it’s the only way he can avoid more layoffs and service cuts.
In addition to pay raises, the mayor is asking employees to give up their service credit pay for the numbers of years they’ve worked for the city.

“He wants us to reply to him within the next nine days. The contract team, we are currently in negotiations with the city negotiating our next contract. We’ve been at the table several months now with the city and now the mayor is calling for immediate action and this is completely unacceptable with how we have negotiated in the past with the city,“ Gilbert said.
Coleman said the only way he can avoid more layoffs and service cuts is to have employees sacrifice salaries.
