Retroactive increases for port authority police.

Retroactive increases for port authority police

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey settled with four unions for 1,800 police who patrol the New York City area's principal airports, marine terminals, tunnels, and other facilities. About 1,500 of the employees are represented by the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association; the remainder are represented by the Sergeant's Benevolent Association, the Detectives Endowment Association, and the Superior Officers Association, which bargain as a unit.

The 4-year contracts were retroactive to the July 1985 termination date of the prior contracts. They provided for 4-percent wage increases effective in July 1985 and in January and July of 1986, 3 percent in January 1987, 6 percent in July 1987, and 5.4 percent in July 1988.

The increases bring the salaries for patrol officers to the $22,500-$42,050 range, up from $17,500-$32,500 prior to July 1985. Salaries for sergeants and detectives were increased to $52,676 (formerly $35,282), and for lieutenants, to $60,554 (formerly $42,692).
