Nashua aldermen to review proposed police union deal
This week, aldermen will be presented with a revised agreement from the Police Supervisors Association that proposes a combined 6.7 percent wage increase for sergeants and a combined 7.7 pay hike for lieutenants over a four-year period.
At the time, a few aldermen cited preferential treatment in the agreements, noting some of the union contracts did not include retroactive health care concessions from the last two years.
Under the previously proposed supervisors union contract, police lieutenants would have received a 5.2 percent wage increase over three years, and sergeants would have received a wage increase of 4.2 percent over that same time frame.
The lieutenants, under the newly proposed agreement, would obtain a 2 percent pay increase in 2012, a 1 percent increase in 2013, a 2.2 percent increase in 2014 and a 2.5 percent increase in 2015.
The contract covers 23 sergeants and nine lieutenants. Currently, the total base pay for all 32 positions is about $2.5 million annually. If the new agreement is adopted, a combined $181,609 (throughout the next four years) will be necessary to pay for the wage increases that will result in a new base pay of $2.7 million for the 32 police supervisor contracts, according to the document.
Police Commissioner Thomas Pappas said previously that he was disappointed city officials did not approve the previously proposed agreements, maintaining both groups worked diligently over an extended period of time to draft the proposed contracts that ultimately were not ratified.
Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at Nashua City Hall.
