Greenville leaders delay personnel policy changes

The Greenville City Council in a personnel policy workshop on Thursday.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Greenville’s city council delayed revamping its personnel policy Thursday night despite complaints from city employees.

The move to push back the issue until next month came after several of them requested changes to the policy.

Back in February some city workers told 9 On Your Side they were unfairly passed over for promotions.

The complaints came as the city attempted to modernize its personnel policies which dated back to 1993.

Activist Keith Cooper, who’s lobbied for changes, said the new policy doesn’t address what he felt is unfair favoritism in the promotion process.

Tthe bottom line is that we need to take subjectivity out of the process,” Cooper said. “We need to tackle the good ol’ boy system that looks out for certain people at the expense of others.”
