Offering market competitive pay is a core Total Rewards principle. It’s one way the Port demonstrates that you are a valued and important member of our team:
- Pay for employees represented by a labor union varies depending on the specific terms of the applicable collective bargaining agreement.
- Pay grades and ranges for non-represented employees are established publicly by the Port Commission through the Salary and Benefits Resolution and Salary and Benefits Policy Directive.
Our Pay-for-Performance Philosophy
Non-represented employees may be eligible for annual performance-based pay increases in conjunction with the Port's performance management program, known as PerformanceLink. New non-represented employees may also be eligible for a performance-related pay increase after successfully completing the first six months of employment at the Port.
Pay Grades and Salary Ranges (for non-represented jobs)
Each non-represented job at the Port has a corresponding pay grade and range. The ranges establish the minimum and maximum pay that employees can receive for performing jobs assigned to a particular range. Each year, the Port conducts a comprehensive market pricing study to determine how well the Port's existing pay ranges align with the external market, and makes adjustments when necessary to ensure that our pay ranges remain competitive.
The calendar shows paydays for employees on a biweekly pay schedule as well our our official Port paid holidays. More information about Port holidays is available on the Leave/Time Off page.
