Oceanside leaders extended two union contracts Wednesday in exchange for employees dismissing their grievances.

The contracts, with the Western Council of Engineers and the Management Employees of the City of Oceanside, were approved with a 5-0 vote and allows for members of both unions to work for the city until June 2016. The original contract had both unions working for the city through June 2015.

The revised contracts comes after grievances were filed with members from both unions. City Manager Steven Jepson said the grievances were over salary differences and met with both unions in May to reach an agreement.

"It was a technicality in the contracts," Jepson said. "To be fair the Council agreed to pay all [employees] the same."

The revise contract includes an increase in pay for bilingual employees and a $2,200 stipend for both July 2014 and July 2015. The new WCE contract will cost the city $48,400 while the revised MECO contract will cost $326,900, according to staff reports.

The contracts affect 58 of the city's 850 full-time employees.
