City and Police Department Negotiations Update

The Police Managers Association and the City of Beaumont executed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on June 19, 2018.  In addition to the benefits package that include CalPERS retirement benefits, a $1,500 monthly health care allowance, education, and certificate incentives, wellness reimbursement, bilingual pay as well as paid leave, the MOU included an immediate 2.5% across the board pay raise; a 5% across the board pay raise effective July 1, 2018; and a 5% across the board pay raise effective July 1, 2019.

 The City continues to be engaged in negotiations with the Police Officers Association (POA).  On June 26, 2018, the City offered the sworn POA members an immediate 2.5% across the board pay raise; a 5% across the board pay raise effective July 1, 2018; a 2.5% across the board pay raise effective July 1, 2019; a 2.5% merit increase FY 19/20; and a longevity lump sum payment of $2,500 upon completion of 15 years work and $5,000 lump sum payment upon completion of 20 years.  The City also proposed an alternative because the POA has requested an across the board 5% pay raise effective July 1, 2019.  In consideration of the 5% across the board pay raise requested by the POA effective July 1, 2019, the City proposed that each employee pick up an additional 2% of the City’s PERS contribution which would be a pre-tax payroll deduction.  For the nonsworn members, the City has offered a 2.5% across the board pay raise effective July 1, 2018; and up to a 2.5% merit-based raise effective on the employee’s anniversary date in 2019.  These proposals are in addition to a benefits package that include CalPERS retirement benefits, a $1,500 monthly health care allowance, education, and certificate incentives, bilingual, training, motor and K9 pay, restoring the wellness reimbursement benefit, and paid leave to include restoring 14 paid holidays.

The City is committed to offering a market competitive and comprehensive package to the POA. The City values the important service of its officers and has worked in good faith to offer a compensation package that is competitive with the market and that will fairly compensate the POA members for their service to the community.    At the same time the City is committed to adopting balanced and sustainable budgets to avoid the poor fiscal management practices that nearly bankrupted the City under the prior administration.    We cannot and will not return to the poor fiscal practices of the past.
