The City of Seattle has negotiated a new contract with SPMA, the union representing SPD lieutenants and captains (as opposed to SPOG, the union representing frontline officers and sergeants).
Most of the changes relate to wages and benefits, not the issues that are sources of ongoing friction between SPOG and SPD.
The contract has been submitted to the Seattle City Council for its deliberation and vote on approving it. The Council staff’s summary and fiscal note provides a synopsis of the changes.
