The proposed three-year agreement addresses many of the uniformed compensation issues that police and firefighters have faced in recent years. Each year, it increases the entry payment in order to further align the city`s entry-level payment with the overall market. The agreement also increases the payment of our newer officers by more than 27 percent in three years. These newer officers are the most vulnerable to the recruitment efforts of other agencies, and our goal with this big pay raise is to keep them in Dallas. The agreement provides for a side-by-side programme allowing the police to recruit other authorities and pay these officials for their experience. Finally, the agreement contains moderate salary increases for the most employed officers.

I thank the Meet & Confer bargaining team of police and fire associations for their thoughtful efforts, creative thinking and hard work that led to this agreement.
