Tampa airport budget skips merit raises

Tampa International employees will forgo merit raises as the airport braces for continued declines in passenger traffic.

The board that oversees Tampa International Airport approved a $189-million budget Thursday that assumes slightly higher revenue for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.

Major construction projects will move ahead, said airport director Louis Miller. But money-saving measures imposed this year, such as running fewer shuttles and escalators, will continue.

Airport employees will get a 2.5 percent cost-of-living raise, but merit raises, which averaged 2 percent this year, will be skipped for the first time in five years.
