NEW LABOR CONTRACT ANNOUNCED IN OCEAN CITY FOR POLICE

A new labor contract with the PBA has been agreed to by the Ocean City Council that will increase their contribution to health benefits effective January 1, 2011. City Council had requested that labor contracts be reopened to provide give backs. The PBA which represents the officers of the Ocean City Police Department is the first to advance an acceptable proposal to provide higher contributions towards the cost of health benefits.  The PBA action will result in about $50,000 in additional funds towards health benefits in 2011 by contributing 1.5% of their salary towards health benefits – one year earlier than it is required by State law.
“We applaud the PBA for the leadership that they have provided.  We know that health benefit costs will continue to rise and their action will help the City to reduce the impact on taxpayers,” Mayor Sal Perillo said.
Also, City Council approved a contract with the Ocean City Pops resulting in no salary increase in 2010.  Negotiations continue with the five other unions that represent the City’s employees.
