Clarkstown reaches contract agreement with police union


NEW CITY – The Town of Clarkstown and the Clarkstown PBA have ratified an agreement for a new contract covering a five-year period from 2018 through 2022.
Town Supervisor George Hoehmann called the pact a “win-win for town taxpayers and our hard working police force.”
The agreement includes a wage increase approximately three-quarters of one percent lower than any other recently negotiated PBA contract in Rockland County and reduced starting salaries for officers hired during or after 2018 by $18,000.  Wages will increase by 1.7 percent in 2018 followed by four years of 1.8 percent hikes.
The agreement also reduces the amount of compensatory time police officers may accumulate from 480 hours to 240 hours.
PBA Vice President Pete Walker called the contract “a fair and equitable agreement that provides a below market salary increase and concessions that will enable the town to better control spending.”
