Contracts Update as of April 16, 2015

Here is quick status update regarding contracts at the various police agencies that the Broward County PBA represents.


The BCPBA had its initial meeting with the Broward Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, April 9, 2015. We brought proposals based on input from the membership survey. Please read BCPBA Secretary, Lee Martin’s, column to learn what happened at the meeting.

The BCBPA met with the City of Hallandale on March 26, 2015 to open negotiations. The next step is for the city to set tentative dates to hear our contract proposals.

On Thursday, April 9, 2015 a second meeting about pension issues and reform was held at the Fred Lippman Center in Hollywood. On April 16, 2016 the BCPBA also held a negotiation session with the city.

The BCPBA notified the City of Miramar that it is ready to begin negotiations. We are waiting for a meeting date to be scheduled.

A notice that the BCPBA is prepared to begin negotiations was sent to the Sunrise city manager. The BCPBA is waiting for a meeting date to be scheduled. The BCPBA has received positive feedback on our progress working with the city.
