ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – Governor Kathy Hochul’s administration has officially reached a contract agreement with the New York State Law Enforcement Officers Union.
“I’m pleased we’ve reached a contract agreement with the courageous men and women of Council 82,” Governor Hochul said. “Each day, these public servants work tirelessly to protect some of our most vulnerable populations, and this agreement recognizes the importance and value of their service.”
The contract will run seven years running until March 2030.
It includes a two percent salary increase for each year of the agreement. The contract also includes changes to health insurance and increase in hazard pay.
The agreement is subject to ratification by union membership, which will occur later this month.
