County police take pay cut, no layoffs | Delawareonline.com | The News Journal: "New Castle County police reached an agreement with the county administration that will avoid layoffs but cut pay by 5 percent.
The union, the Fraternal Order of Police No. 5, agreed to a three-year contract, which is retroactive to April 1, 2008 and will expire on June 30, 2011. While the county committed to not laying off officers over the next two years, the union agreed to give back 5 percent of compensation during the 2010 and 2011 fiscal years through increased health care contributions and reductions in overtime, court standby and holiday pay, which totals $1.2 million."
