City and Police Union Reach Tentative Contract Agreement
(1/24/2013) New Haven, CT – Today Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. announced that the City of New Haven and AFSCME Police Union Local 530 have reached a tentative five-year contract agreement.
“This agreement is fair but competitive. It will allow us to attract the best and the brightest to the New Haven Police Department by compensating them fairly, while saving the taxpayers of the city money,” said Mayor DeStefano. “I also want to acknowledge the work of Local 530’s negotiating committee in getting to an agreement.”
The tentative agreement must now go before Local 530’s general membership for a ratification vote. Upon union membership’s ratification the agreement would then move to the Board of Aldermen for final approval.
The Local 530’s last contract expired in July 2011 and if ratified, the new five-year contract will last until June 30, 2016. Currently New Haven has over 400 sworn officers within the department.
