Mayor Madden, Troy Police Benevolent Association Announce Tentative Six-Year Labor Contract Agreement
Agreement is 6th Voluntary Labor Agreement Reached by Madden Administration Since 2016
TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the city has reached a tentative labor agreement with the Troy Police Benevolent and Protective Association (PBA) which covers the City of Troy’s 119 sworn Troy police officers. Effective through 2023, the agreement is the sixth voluntary labor settlement reached by the Madden administration since assuming office in January of 2016, and the second with the PBA since 2017.
Mayor Madden said, “The city is pleased to come to agreement with the Troy Police Benevolent Association on this important labor contract. The agreement demonstrates a commitment to achieving a long-term contract which respects the important contributions of our police officers while maintaining responsible oversight over Troy’s finances, and we look forward to the ratification and final approval of this contract.”
Nicholas Laviano, President of the Troy Police Benevolent and Protection Association said, “The PBA and the City worked hard on negotiating a fair and favorable contract for both the city and the PBA. After extended discussions we were able to come to a deal that benefits all parties involved. The resulting agreement will help with recruitment of lateral hires to the Troy police department into the future. I commend Mayor Madden, Deputy Mayor Kurzejeski, Deputy Comptroller Piotrowski, Det. Sergeants Cipperly and Mary Magnetto, Detective Millington, Officer Robert Smith, and all who were involved in this process.”
The tentative contract agreement is set for ratification by PBA membership later this month. Following ratification, the contract will be subject to approval by the City Council.
