Chicago police sergeants, city reach contract deal

CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The city of Chicago has reached a 4-year agreement with the union representing police sergeants.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the deal calls for a 1% increase for three years in pension fund contributions by the police department's 1,125 sergeants. Under the agreement, by January 2015 each sergeant will pay 12% of the pension cost.

The agreement includes a 9% pay raise spread over four years. It maintains the $1,800-a-year uniform allowance and $3,220 in annual duty availability pay.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the contract serves as a framework for pension costs that enhances the retirement security of employees and addresses the financial pressures on taxpayers.

Chicago Police Sergeants Association president Jim Ade says the agreement will be a tough sell to members, who must ratify it.
