The Municipal Collective Bargaining Process
Between October 2020 and June 2021, the City and Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #70 (FOP) bargaining teams met several times to negotiate a successor to the labor agreement expiring on June 30, 2020. Through a collaborative process, the teams reached a tentative agreement for a three-year contract beginning on July 1, 2020, and ending June 30, 2023.
The agreement was ratified by FOP members on August 12, 2021. A Resolution approving a Collective Bargaining Agreement with Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #70 was presented to the Committee of the Whole on September 7, 2021 and forwarded with no recommendation to City Council for the September 13, 2021 regular meeting.
