Police ink new two-year deal

Members of the Guelph Police Service are getting a raise. The Guelph Police Services Board has announced that it has reached a two-year contract settlement with the Guelph Police Association for Jan. 1, 2013, to Dec. 31, 2014.
The deal will see salary increases for both uniform and civilian police service members of one per cent effective Jan. 1, 2013, a further one per cent July 1, 2013, and 0.75 per cent on Dec. 1, 2013. Increases for 2014 will be 1.5 per cent effective Jan. 1, another one per cent on July 1, and 0.2 per cent on Dec. 1.
As part of contract negotiations, the board conducted a comprehensive survey of comparative police agencies to ensure salaries, benefits and other collective agreement items were representative, as well as within the median range, a news release said. The settlement aligns the Guelph Police Service with other local comparators, including the Guelph Fire Department and the Waterloo Regional Police Service, it said.
The local police association is made up of about 188 uniform members and 90 civilian members.
“We are proud of our members of the Guelph Police Service who provide a high level of policing services to the city of Guelph,” board chair Judy Sorbara said in the release.
“We recognize the continued need to ensure the service is innovative and efficient with a strong focus on long-term planning to ensure a professional and financially responsible approach to community policing.”
