Mass. police may get 9/11 "holiday" pay

Associated Press

PEABODY, Mass. — Officials say police in Peabody, Mass., could be getting holiday pay on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack in what may be a first-of-its-kind contract provision.

A proposed new contract between the city and the police union makes the attacks anniversary a paid holiday. The proposed contract still needs budgetary approval from the city council.

Officers would receive an extra 25 percent pay for working on the day.

Representatives of the International Brotherhood of Police Officers and the International Union of Police Associations told The Salem News they knew of no similar contract provisions in any other city.
