City reaches tentative deal with uniform supervisors

By Sally Goldenberg

The de Blasio administration said tonight it has reached tentative contract agreements with eight unions representing uniform supervisors, deals that include slightly better salary increases than other unions have accepted this year. The announcment marks a significant breakthrough in labor negotiations for City Hall.

The 11,900 supervisors will be paid 11 percent, compounded, over six years and seven months. The first raise will take effect in the final month of the contract's first year. By comparison, the United Federation of Teachers and other unions that have already settled got 10 percent, compounded, over seven years.

The deal announced tonight covers all uniform supervisors other than the Sergeants Benevolent Association. Until now, the administration has been unable to strike deals with any uniform unions, which has complicated Mayor Bill de Blasio's already tense relationship with segments of the NYPD.

City Hall has yet to reach agreements with the rank-and-file workers in the police, fire, sanitation and correction agencies.
