New York State and the Police Benevolent Association of New York have agreed to a retroactive four-year contract running through March 2023. The deal was ratified this week by all 1,200 PBA members.

In a statement from Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office, the Democrat says the terms of the agreement reflect recognition of the importance of work.

The contract includes a salary increase of two percent per year of each year of the agreement and is consistent with other agreements made with other state employees.

The agreement also resolved more than 160 grievances and other disputes and increases joint labour-management funding for training and benefits. Agreements on technology, body-worn cameras and programming were also in the pact.
