Police Union Voting on Contract Deal With City

Remember that labor agreement reached between city and police union negotiators two months ago? It’s still not a done deal.

Mayor Ivy Taylor says the San Antonio Police Officers Association is voting on it this week.

“By Friday, we should know if they approved it,” Taylor said on the Trey Ware morning show on KTSA.

If the agreement get’s the okay from union members, it’ll go to the city council for final approval.

The 5-year-deal calls for a 3-percent pay raise for officers this year, and pay raises totaling 14-percent over the next four years.

What if the plan is rejected?

“We would have to look at our options, as far as going back to the negotiating table,” Taylor said.
