Update 09/08/16 3:05 p.m.: Council members approved the raises Thursday by a 7-2 vote. Council members David Mann and Amy Murray were the two dissenting votes.

Original Post: The full Cincinnati Council is likely to vote Thursday on a couple proposals giving four to five percent pay raises to all city workers.  The increases would apply to union and non-union workers, except for department heads.  

Cincinnati's improving financial health has meant some city workers are starting to see bigger paychecks.

So far five of the six labor unions have negotiated small cost of living adjustments for their members.  But there are about 440 city employees who are still waiting.  

Council Member Yvette Simpson addressed the issue during a meeting last week.
