It’s not official yet, but Star-News reporter Nathan McIntire reports today that the Monrovia Police Officers’ Association “has reached a preliminary agreement on a new five-year labor contract with the city.”

Looks like union members voted for the proposal in the last week, which includes a 22 percent raise for officers over five years. That’s a whole lot more than what other law enforcement agencies got in their contract negotiations recently.

The contract still has to be approved by the City Council, but it looks like smooth sailing from here.
