All Centralia Police Union Contracts Now Complete

August 10, 2016

The final union at the Centralia Police Department has ratified a new contract with the city.  

Centralia City Manager Dan Ramey says the patrol officers who are members of the Fraternal Order of Police will receive a two percent raise each year under the four year contract.  They will also receive a 2-percent longevity pay increase after completing 20 years of service.   

The union members approved the new agreement during a Monday afternoon meeting, with the city council giving its final approval at Monday night’s city council meeting.   

Mayor Tom Ashby cast the only no vote.  He expressed concern over the wage increases during times of uncertain state funding and the fact police officers will be making much more than the average salary for residents of the city.  

Ramey also announced a tentative contract agreement has been worked out with the Operating Engineers Union in the Public Works Department.   Members of the union are scheduled to vote on the proposal on Wednesday.

That would leave only the Centralia Firefighters without a new contract.  Ramey reports negotiations are continuing.
