Trustees approve police officers' new contract
Dec. 15, 2008
KALAMAZOO--In a Dec. 12 vote, Western Michigan University trustees authorized the University administration to implement a new three-year agreement between WMU and its 18-member Police Officers Association.
The agreement, which is effective July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2011, was ratified by the union Dec. 3.
The contract calls for a 3 percent across-the-board increase to base pay in each year of the agreement. The new contract also calls for changes to language to make it more consistent with other bargaining unit agreements at WMU as well as items detailing life insurance and annual eligibility for a fitness bonus.
