Proposed Manchester police union contract would cost $2 million, reports city finance director
MANCHESTER — A proposed contract for the Manchester police union would cost the city more than $2 million according to analysis by City Finance Director Bill Sanders, reports the Union Leader.
Sanders said in a report to aldermen that there would be a 16.7 percent increase in salary when raises, step increases, and other factors are calculated.
The proposed contract is not going to be a public document until the board meeting on Sept. 20, but a source with access is reported to have said that nine of the 14 aldermen for the city support the contract in a consensus vote.
The deal needs to be approved by members of the Manchester Police Patrolman's Association as well.
