Ann Arbor Reaches Accord with Police Specialists

At its June 20, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor city council approved a new collective bargaining agreement with its police service specialist union for a contract that goes retroactively from July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2013.

Key features of the contract are no wage increases and participating in the city’s health plan, which requires a contribution by employees to the cost. There are five members of the police service specialist union. They are civilians, who provide support services to police officers.

This leaves the contract with the much larger police officers union still unsettled – it expired on June 30, 2009.

This brief was filed from the city council’s chambers on the second floor of city hall, located at 301 E. Huron. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
