Reno police appear to be headed for a 17 and one-half percent pay increase over the life of a five-year contract tentatively endorsed by their labor association and the city.
That comes to three and one-half percent a year.
The two sides agreed last week to the new contract after
signaling they were at an impasse and ready for binding
arbitration, which involves a third party resolving problem areas.
Members of the Reno Police Protective Association and the Reno
City Council must approve the contract, which will be retroactive
to July first, when the old contract expired.
