North Andover Police agree to wage Freeze

According to the eagle tribune the North Andover police have agreed to a 2 year wage freeze in exchange for language that protects their Quinn bill funding. The deal involves the 2 Unions agreeing to wage freezes and paying more for health insurance. The town under the previous agreement was only responsible for 50% of the payout but will now cover 100% in exchange for the concessions and a sunset provision for those entitled to the benefit.

As towns and Police try to reconcile the fact that the state seems inclined to balance the budget on their backs with cuts to local aid and benefits the deal in that respect is a good one. This will allow projected stability for the town and Police for the forseeable future without worrying about how much the State is going to pay out. The sunset provision is a growing trend unfortunately, as the reality of the Quinn bills lifespan is becoming evidently shorter.
