Police officers and firefighters working without a contract

by Deena Winter

It seems as though nobody has noticed that the firefighters and police officers still haven’t finished their labor agreements.
While the other city unions have theirs signed and sealed — except for the Public Association of Government Employees, which is taking their wage dispute to the state — the police and fire contracts are nowhere to be seen.
The 2010-2011 municipal budget was passed last month — and it plugs in about 2 percent raises for all employees. If the police and fire contracts — which account for the bulk of personnel — go any higher than that, the money will have to be found somewhere.
City officials can’t really comment on the status of negotiations, though.
