Gatsas vetoes contract with $800K salary increase for Manchester police association
MANCHESTER — Mayor Ted Gatsas vetoed a new three-year contract that would have increased the Manchester Association of Police Supervisors (MPAS) salaries by more than $800,000 over the next three years.
The veto came after aldermen approved this contract on a 9-4 vote, the Union Leader reported.
The contract included a one percent increase in FY 2017 — retroactive to July 1, 2016 — and three percent increases effective July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018.
Alderman Dan O'Neil has made a motion to override Gatsas' veto. This motion failed on a 9-4 vote, since 10 votes were needed to override the veto.
