Oakland Cops to Take Compensation Cuts

The Oakland Police Officers’ union is expected to agree to an overall 7.5 percent cut in compensation after union leaders reached a tentative agreement with the city. According to the Chron and the Trib, the police rank-and-file began voting on the agreement last night. The deal would save the city about $11.8 million next year, and it’s hard to see the union members turning it down, after it got a ringing endorsement from their leadership. “I think it’s a good deal for everybody right now,” Sgt. Dom Arotzarena, the police union president, told the Trib. “It will save jobs. It will save the city money.”
