Youngstown lawmakers reject fact-finder's report involving police officers



Published: Thu, January 9, 2014 @ 5:55 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — City council unanimously rejected a fact-finder’s report on a three-year contract with its police patrol officers union that called for 1-percent annual raises.

Council’s vote today came at the recommendation of the city administration that focused on the 1-percent pay raise in annual base-pay that is retroactive to 2013. The city didn’t give pay raises to any union in 2013, said Law Director Martin Hume.

It’s been close to four years since the last pay raise was given to any union in the city.

City officials want to meet with police union officials before going to a state conciliator who would hear both sides and make a binding decision, Hume said.

The police patrol union members previous contract expired Nov. 30, 2012.

Council also unanimously voted today to accept a fact-finder’s report that calls for no increase in base pay for members of the firefighters' union.

The firefighters contract doesn’t expire until Aug. 31, but the current three-year deal allowed the union to reopen it and seek a pay increase.

The union wanted a one-time payment of $1,485 while the city wanted to not give any additional money to the members.

The fact-finder in that case sided with the city.
