Arroyo Grande police union reaches labor agreement with the city & SanLuisObispo.com: "Police officers in Arroyo Grande have agreed to contribute more to their retirement costs and accepted a two-tier pension plan in negotiations with Arroyo Grande administrators.
The Arroyo Grande Police Officers Association signed the contract in part to help the city deal with its budget deficit. The city faces a $703,000 deficit to the $13.4 million general fund.
By agreeing to pay more for their retirement costs, the POA generated a savings of $280,000 for the city, union leaders said.
The new agreement is retroactive to July 1 and runs through June 30, 2012. The contract covers sworn officers, dispatchers and records personnel."
