Los Angeles police settle

Salaries of police officers in Los Angeles, CA, reportedly will be second only to police in Anchorage, AL, as a result of a settlement between the city and die Police Protective League. The settlement was delayed by a long dispute over grievance procedures that was not resolved until March 1988. The 4-year accord provided for a 4-percent salary increase retroactive to July 1, 1988, additional 4-percent increases in July of 1989 and 1990, and a 5-percent increase in July 1991. The initial increase brought annual salaries to $31,570 for firstyear patrol officers, and to $41,405 for officers with 7 years of service. Longevity pay was also raised, in steps; after the final step in 1991, rates will be $108 a month for officers with 10 to fewer than 15 years of services, $220 for those with 15 to fewer than 20 years, and $332 for 20 years of service or more.

Other teffns included:

* A $4 a month increase in the city's financing of dental benefits in the second and fourth contract years.

* A two-step increase in the annual uniform allowance, to $650, from $550.

* A $500 "special allowance" in December 1991.

* A new union-administered program, financed by the city up to $950,000, to aid employees in dealing with personal problems, such as stress and finances.
