Police deal, veto on agenda
If approved, the 15 members of the union will not receive any pay increases for the first two years of the contract, but will earn a 1.8 percent increase in fiscal year 2014 and a 2.5 percent increase for fiscal year 2015, according to the proposal.
Despite the significant wage increases, Lozeau said previously that her major concern with the contract is a provision that allows union members to utilize 15 sick days toward retroactive health care costs. She is vetoing that portion of the bargaining agreement.
"I am surprised that she vetoed it," Alderman Diane Sheehan, Ward 3, said recently of Lozeau. Sheehan said city officials now have an ideal opportunity to "walk the walk," adding it is important that the board does not allow the veto to stand.
If the motion to reconsider passes, an alderman may then move to override the veto. Ten votes are required to override the mayor's veto.
