Tentative contract deal gives NYC police sergeants pay raise

After a marathon negotiation session Wednesday night, the police sergeants union reached a tentative contract deal with the city.

According to the Daily News, the contract calls for a 10.25 percent pay raise over the next 24 months. However, the deal would lengthen the amount of time it takes a sergeant to reach maximum pay. Sergeants would agree to give supervisors more flexibility in scheduling under the deal. Also, base pay at the second, third and fourth salary step would be reduced.

Meanwhile, the Uniformed Firefighters Association is also in negotiations with the city for a new contract. New York City firefighters have been working without a contract since July 2002.
