New York City Reaches Tentative Agreement With 11 Unions

The package of deals will include annual raises of between 3.25 to 4 percent over the next several years. The city says that it has now resolved more than three-quarters of the contracts that were pending when Mayor Adams took office last year.

New York City has reached tentative labor agreements with 11 unions representing uniformed city workers — a package of deals that includes annual salary increases of between 3.25 percent to 4 percent over the next several years.

Mayor Eric Adams announced the tentative contracts with the Uniformed Officers Coalition on Thursday in the City Hall rotunda and said the city has now resolved more than three-quarters of the contracts that were pending when he first took office last year.

The unions that make up that Coalition include those that represent rank-and-file firefighters, sanitation workers, correction officers and NYPD sergeants, captains and lieutenants.

“We went through a lot of the last three years, and we’re going to make sure we’re there for them and state that we support them — and continue to stop the hemorrhaging of city employees,” Adams said. “As a former member of the New York City Police Department, retired, I know how dedicated city first line workers are. We want to continue to give them the support they deserve.”

The tentative five-year deals follow the pattern bargaining set by the city’s new contract with the Police Benevolent Association. The terms of each deal are slightly different, but will generally follow the pattern set with the PBA. Under the new tentative contracts — all of which need to be approved through union ratification, workers will get raises of 3.25 percent in the first two years, 3.5 percent raises in the next two years and a raise of 4 in year five.

The announcement comes just two days after Adams announced a tentative deal with the United Federation of Teachers.
