NYC PBA announces approval of ratified contract for retroactive wage increases

The Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York announced Monday it has ratified the contract for officers to receive retroactive wage increases.
They say 84.7% of PBA members voted and 97.6% voted in favor of the new deal.
The contract provides wage increases retroactive to 2017 and going through 2025, ranging from 2.25 to 4% percent over the contract period.
“The men and women of the NYPD put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our city safe — and we’re proud that the PBA contract ratified today recognizes the unique contributions and sacrifices that members of service make on behalf of all New Yorkers," Mayor Adams said in a statement. "This contract offers fair wage increases, provides for greater flexibility for our officers, and boosts the salary schedule for starting officers to ensure they are fairly compensated. We thank Office of Labor Relations Commissioner Renee Campion and PBA President Pat Lynch for their relentless efforts to reach this historic agreement.”
A new pilot program that will allow officers to test working extended tours of 10 and 12-hour shifts was also part of the contract.
