Denver City Council OKs DPD contract terms between union, city

An independent arbitrator earlier this month decided on the terms, which include two pay raises in 2022.

DENVER — Denver City Council on Monday night voted 10-3 to approve new contract terms for Denver Police officers through 2022.

The terms include two pay raises in 2022 — a 2% pay raise on Jan. 1, 2022 and a 1.5% raise on July 1, according to a release from the Denver Police Protective Association (DPPA). A pay freeze and no holiday pay premiums are also included in the contract, as well as reduced city contributions to the retiree health trust.

An independent arbitrator decided on the new contract terms earlier this month.
