The election of a new a Mayor certainly provided a different attitude on the Employers part during the negotiations.  The team was able to conduct informal negotiations and move the parties to an amiable resolution for a successor Labor Agreement. One major challenge was to ensure where applicable the Patrol Officer and Sergeants titles had applicable provisions of the collective bargaining agreement apply where appropriate and separated the titles for provison only to the other title.  I would like to thank the team for their commitment to the process while maintaing a working partnership with Management.
