Flint EM to Impose New Police Contract with Concessions
Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley has notified the City Council that he plans to use his powers to impose a new contract for Flint police officers.
According to MLive, the plan would include enrolling new officers in a hybrid pension plan, capping payments by the city for retiree health care, and capping sick, vacation and other paid time off to 300 hours.
In the letter to City Council, Earley stated his team had met with representatives of the Flint Police Officers Association eight times since November, yet have not been able to reach an agreement. He says the changes will save the city $336,000 immediately and $4.3 million in the long term.
