Manhattan Sergeants and Patrol Officers have reached agreement on a new three year contract.  The Agreement was completed after only a few bargaining sessions.  Wages shall increase 7.5% over the term of the contract. Members will now receive a uniform allowance check in lieu of a quartermaster system  Benefit time will now be calculated based on which shift the officers work, either eight hours or twelve.  This new Agreement was quickly approved by both the members and the Manhattan Village Board demonstrating the good working relationship between the parties.
