An arbitrator, who had heard testimony from both parties three days earlier, accepted several new provisions added by the National Police Union, including a 30-minute paid lunch break. Under the previous agreement, the soldiers were not paid for lunch and had to remain ready to enter service if their assistance was needed. The contract was approved by the Budgets Committee on Friday after an hour-long public hearing. Legislators credited the officials of the National Police Union with the fact that they had reached an agreement that was fair to both parties. The cost of the contract over a three-year period will be approximately $48 million. The money will first be taken from the salary adjustment reserve fund account, which includes financing pricing fees related to unresolved contracts, the ATOS said. To make it easier to navigate these contracts, you`ll also find a diagram that describes the status of contracts. For example, some of the contracts below have expired, which may indicate that the policy did not respond to FOI requests or that the agency has not yet negotiated at the time of our request. According to the latest contracts we have been able to collect, police contracts have been entered into in at least 21 localities, which expire in June 2020. The bargaining units of state employees may contain a language that succeeds state law if the language and law are contained in an annex to the treaty, Murphy said. In the late 1970s, Troopers finally won the right to bargain collectively. Troopers could negotiate with the state of Connecticut on wages, benefits and working conditions.

But Troopers felt lost in a large union of state employees of about 40,000 workers, with only 800 soldiers represented by the CSEA. In addition, The Troopers have unique careers, problems and working conditions. An independent union was needed to devote more time and energy to the uniqueness of prosecutions and the challenges of a working union within a paramilitary organization such as the State Police, which is also isolated from many innovations in personal and professional relations. The authority`s lawyers are still reviewing the new language to determine what it would mean, said Brian Foley, director of the Department of Emergency Services and Dessol, James Rovella, who oversees the state police. Below are the current contracts for 16 of the state`s tariff units in the executive. After more than a year of freedom of information (FOI), the Connecticut ACLU has published a national study on police union contracts. “Bargained Away: How Local and State Governments in Connecticut Have Bargained Police Accountability,” focuses on the role that the provisions of municipal and government police contracts play in protecting police employees from reasonable discipline when they harm people to block cities in guaranteed annual investments in policing, to prevent transparency and accountability of the police as a whole, and sometimes to conflict with the laws. State. The report also contains recommended measures for policy makers at the local and national levels. The Commission is aware that some government employee contracts contain provisions preventing the disclosure of personal data, Murphy said.

But what is particularly worrisome is the new language on investigations that are “unfounded” or “unfounded,” “not to be subject to Connecticut`s Freedom of Information Act,” she said.
