Big turnout for police union concessions vote 

Police officers have come out in force to vote for or against concessions to its union contract.

Police Officers’ Association members are voting on a deal negotiated with Newsom that would save The City about $20 million during the next two fiscal years. The deal means a deferred raise and furlough days, but police will still get a 4 percent raise in July.

By midday Monday, more than 1,050 officers voted on the proposal, according to police Officers Association Vice President Kevin Martin.

“It’s one of the better turnouts we’ve had,” Martin said.

There has been some pushback on the deal from union members with about 10 to 15 years in the department, Martin said.
