A raise for police in La Crosse gets a vote Thursday by the city’s finance and personnel committee
The first raise could come early in 2021 if a new contract with the police’s union is approved by the La Crosse City Council.
The contract calls for 3% annual raises each of the next three years for the La Crosse Poliec Department through the union, called the La Crosse Professional Police Non-Supervisory Association.
The raises would happen twice a year. First by 1% in January and then by 2% in September ovcr those three years.
The city’s finance and personnel committee votes on that Thursday. It would then move to next week’s city council meeting Dec. 10 for a final vote.
The police union’s contract with the city expires at the end of the year.
The meeting is at 6 p.m. Here’s the agenda, which also includes 2.5% raises for the next two years for the city’s Municipal Transit through its union contract, the Amalgamated Transit Union.
