City/Police Union Move To Reach Agreement
The City of Omaha has reached a tentative contract agreement with the police union. Mayor Jean Stothert and Omaha Police Officers Association President Tony Conner made the announcement yesterday. The new deal calls for salary increases, pension reform, and changes to health coverage. It now has to be approved by the union's rank-and-file, the city's personnel board, and City Council. The current contract expires in December.
