PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The raises that fired Port Authority CEO Steve Bland handed out on the same day the Port Authority Board of Directors voted to fire him have reportedly been rescinded.
According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Port Authority’s interim CEO, Ellen McLean, rescinded those raises late Saturday.
The two-and-a-quarter percent raise were for non-union employees.
Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald told KDKA on Friday night that the raises shouldn’t have happened.
“We’re trying to reform this agency; we’re trying to show we can hold the line on expenses. We’re going to the state to try to get additional money,” said Fitzgerald. “This is not the time to try to sneak through some sort of a pay increase.”
Bland was fired on Friday.
