Police pay agreement includes raises over three years

By Cindy Yingst, Friday, April 6, 2018

The city has approved a three-year agreement with the Warrenton police officers union, giving officers raises during each of the next three years.

“For the work that we do, our unit felt it very much was undervalued,” Tyler Johnston told city commissioners in February, when negotiations had stalled.

The collective bargaining agreement between the city and Warrenton Police Employees Local 2746-1 includes a 2 percent cost of living adjustment retroactive to July 1, 2017. There will be two additional salary raises, a 2.5 percent raise effective July 1, 2018, and another 2.5 percent raise on July 1, 2019.

Additional adjustments were made for uniforms, scheduling, canine pay and long-term disability insurance.

In February, the commission approved a three-year collective bargaining agreement with its general employees, giving city workers a 2 percent cost of living adjustment retroactive to July 1, 2017 and 2 percent increases for each of the next three years.
