The Sunrise Police Lieutenants Bargaining Unit voted today to ratify their 2015-2018 collective bargaining agreement with the city.

Highlights of the new deal include a 2 1/2 percent raise, effective from October 1, 2015, and will increase another 1 1/2 percent on January 1, 2018. Employees may also receive additional pay step increases for continuous full-time service with the city.

“It is great to work with a municipality that values the men and women in blue who serve,” Broward County PBA President Jeff Marano said.
