Campbell officials talk police raises

City administrators and police union representatives met Friday for a fact-finding session over raises for police.

A state fact-finder heard arguments from both sides. The city is contending it cannot give raises to city employees while it is in fiscal emergency.

The fact-finder indicated his decision, which will be nonbinding, will be issued Dec. 15, said Campbell Mayor Bill VanSuch.

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 42, which represents the police department’s 12 full-time officers, went into talks with the city in July.

The current three-year contract was settled last year but was able to be reopened only for talks on wages.

The city has been in fiscal emergency since 2004.

A state-ordered fiscal commission oversees it and recommends against raises.

VanSuch said Monday that two representatives from the state auditor’s office who sit on the commission were in on the fact-finding meeting.

After the fact-finder’s recommendation, the issue could go to binding arbitration, VanSuch said.

Police make between $30,000 and $40,000 a year now.

The city is planning to ask for release from fiscal emergency in January.
