(SALT LAKE CITY) - Police say they won't strike during the Olympics, but the inability of the police association and mayor to agree on a contract means both sides could be back at the bargaining table duking it out when the Olympics are in town next year.
The City Council could approve a one- or multi-year compensation package. If the council opts for a one-year deal, negotiations for the following year's contract would begin Jan. 15 -- almost one month before the the Winter Games begin, and a time when several international media and visitors will probably already be in Salt Lake City looking for entertainment.
