City Council Approves Police Union MOU Extension
The Rocklin City Council has unanimously approved an agreement between the City of Rocklin and the Rocklin Police Dept. bargaining units made up of the Rocklin Police Officers’ Association and the Rocklin Police Officers Association Public Safety Managers (collectively the Union) amending and extending the current Memoranda of Understanding executed on Feb. 27, 2018, through June 30, 2022.
The amended agreement keeps police department salaries stable through June 2022, and calls for stipends of $1,200 to Union employees in Jan. 2021 and in July 2021. Additional changes to special duty pay, cafeteria health plans, and minor non-substantive language adjustments can be viewed in this City Council report, along with links to the full resolutions.
“The City of Rocklin and Rocklin Police Department unions have an outstanding partnership,” Mayor Jill Gayaldo said. “The safety and security of residents is our highest priority and this extension provides financial stability for the city in unpredictable times.”
The costs associated with the updated agreement are approximately $101,000 in Fiscal Year 2020/21 and will be paid for by salary savings derived through normal department vacancies that occur throughout the year. For FY 2021/22, the costs associated with this agreement are approximately $176,000, which will be incorporated during the budget preparation process.
