San Diego deputies to get 16 percent raise

PoliceOne Staff Report
(SAN DIEGO) -- The third vote and third offer were the charm as deputies, by a more than five-to-one margin, approved a union contract that calls for a wage and benefits increase of more than 16 percent over the next two-and-a-half-years.

By a margin of 1,085 to 188, the Deputy Sheriffs' Association approved the pact, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Beginning Dec. 15 and extending through June 2003, the pact will cost San Diego County approximately $40 million, Carlos Arauz, county director of human resources, told the newspaper.

The more than 2,200 deputies represented by the union had been working without a contract since June. Earlier attempts were turned down in August and October.

County supervisors will consider the contract next Tuesday. It calls for raises of 5 percent in January, 6 percent in July and 4.15 percent in July 2002. Under the contract improved retirement benefits are also to be discussed in March, the newspaper reported.
