SAN JOSE, Calif. — Trying to head off more layoffs of cops, San Jose's police union Wednesday tentatively agreed to continue 10 percent pay cuts for at least another year and a half.
The agreement most likely ends a dispute with city leaders that was just days away from being arbitrated and could have doubled next year's budget gap if the salary reductions expired.
