Patrol Officers, Dispatchers Get Raise
Selectmen approved the three-year contract Tuesday night.
Westborough's police patrol officers and dispatchers will get 2 percent raises annually for the next three fiscal years.
Selectmen approved the three-year contract between Westborough and IBPO Local 439 on Tuesday night. The deal covers fiscal years 2014 through 2016.
"Thank you for the good faith of the collective bargaining unit and everybody who was involved in doing this," Selectmen Chairman Leigh Emery told Officer Tyson Delong, who attended Tuesday's session with Police Chief Alan Gordon.
The deal reduces future officer's longevity "from 4% bumps to 3% bumps over the max rate," Town Manager Jim Malloy told selectmen in their information packet.
The contract also modifies the employees' vacation benefit "to correspond to (the) employee's anniversary date (instead of fiscal year) and half Quinn Bill benefits for those employees hired after July 1, 2009," Malloy wrote.
