New police contracts sets the pace for city employee pension reform

Kudos to the Pleasanton Police Officers' Association (PPOA) and city of Pleasanton negotiators on reaching an amicable agreement on a new contract that has officers contributing toward their pensions. Starting Saturday, March 3, when a new pay period begins, those in the Police Department covered by the contract will contribute 3% of the Employer Paid Member Contribution toward their CalPERS retirement program. In July, the contribution jumps to 6% with the full 9% member contribution to be deducted from their pay beginning July 1, 2013. The new contract runs from this month until May 31, 2014.
