SAPOA AND CITY OF SAN ANTONIO REACH TENTATIVE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT
SAN ANTONIO, TX — Danny Diaz, President of the San Antonio Police Officers’ Association, had the following statement regarding the tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement with the City of San Antonio
“After a year of negotiations, we are proud to announce a tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement between the San Antonio Police Officers’ Association (SAPOA) and the City of San Antonio. Our Bargaining Team and City leadership made consistent movement towards an agreement that maintains healthcare benefits, increases wages, and provides updates to police accountability practices.
In any negotiation there are always challenging moments, but both sides consistently worked towards our shared goals of providing a contract that protects police officers, while delivering on community concerns about the future of law enforcement and police accountability in San Antonio. We believe we have met our shared goals and are delivering the contract to our Membership for input and review. Over the next few weeks, we will brief our SAPOA family and request ratification of the contract in a formal vote.
I want to thank our SAPOA Bargaining Team for their hard work and dedication to our law enforcement family. I also extend my gratitude to City leadership for fair negotiations and the teamwork to reach this tentative agreement.”
