SLO police take pay cuts

By NICK POWELL

The union representing the county’s highest-paid police officers has accepted concessions in contract negotiations settled Oct. 8 with the city of San Luis Obispo.

The SLO Police Officers Association agreed to forego cost of living increases until at least 2016, and current pay will be reduced by four percent over the next two years. While less money will go into officers’ pockets, more will come out. Gone are their allowances for uniforms, and their share of pension contributions will go up by 3 percent.

Combined with similar agreements reached with the management group and unions for city firefighters, chiefs, police staff, and other city employees, this move marks another step toward the city’s goal of reducing personnel costs by $3.1 million.
