Baltimore police union votes to accept proposed labor contract

Posted at 10:28 PM, Nov 13, 2018

Baltimore City's police union and its members have voted to accept a proposed labor agreement with the City.

On Tuesday evening, The City's Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 tweeted out an initial announcement.

A highlight of the proposed agreement would be the inclusion of civilians to sit on police trial boards, which currently consists of only three sworn members of the police department. The addition of civilians to such hearings has long been a hold up in labor negotiations between union leaders and elected city officials.

It's unclear as to how many civilians will be permitted to sit on future trial boards.

The agreement would be for three years and would include a nine percent pay raise broken up into increments of three percent in each year of the contract.

No other details of the contract could be immediately confirmed.
