NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City police union officials say officers have overwhelmingly approved a contract that gives them a 17 percent raise over four years and increases starting pay for rookies.
It's the first deal between the city and the police officers' union since 1994 that didn't have to be decided by a state arbitration panel. Members of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association approved the contract by 94 percent.
Under the agreement, which covers 23,000 officers, starting annual pay for rookies goes from $36,000 to more than $40,000. The officers' contract is retroactive to Aug. 1, 2006, and runs to July 31, 2010.
The PBA is the nation's largest municipal police union.
