City of Brookfield clerical police employees to contribute to pensions

Feb. 22, 2012

Members of City of Brookfield Local 315, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association-Clerical Unit, will now be required to make pension contributions.

The Human Resources and Public Safety Committee on Tuesday approved a memorandum of understanding between the city and the union, specifying that union members will begin paying 5.9 percent of wages toward their pensions with their Feb. 24 paycheck.

To help offset the financial impact to employees, the agreement also advances a 1.25 percent pay adjustment from July 1 to Jan. 13 of this year.

The agreement will save the city about $33,000 annually. Similar agreements are now in place with four of the city’s five unions, Human Resources Director Jim Zwerlein said.
