Yale police union reaches deal on new contract with university

Education

After more than two years of talks, dozens of protests, and the threat of a strike, Yale University and the school’s police union have reached a deal on a new contract.

It’s a seven-year agreement that includes a 3 percent raise for each of those years.

Yale officers will top out at a maximum pay of $95,000 per year.

The deal preserves medical and prescription coverage benefits for retirees, but, the union did agree to concessions on health insurance premiums.

An attorney for the police union said, in part:

“Over the past two years, the YPBA and the university have worked in good faith to resolve our differences and have reached a tentative agreement that is fair to both parties. Most importantly, we believe the agreement recognizes the risks and sacrifices our members make while protecting the Yale community.”
