Subject: New Open Records Act Application: Police Contract/Collective Agreement (Boulder Police Department) Bliley then spoke about the recent appointment of Boulder`s new police chief, Maris Herold. Bliley wrote that the police death was a tragedy, but an “extremely unusual event.” “He ignores the hundreds of thousands of positive police contacts with the Colorado public and instead focuses on a tragic death that lies hundreds of miles away,” he wrote. Boulder Police Association union president Mark Bliley on Monday issued a statement about the death of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis and opposed negative generalizations from the lawsuits. Mayor Michael Hancock`s office issued the following statement on the agreement: According to the matrix of the existing collective agreement, for example, workers can expect annual increases of between 2 and 6 percent, depending on whether they fall under the bottom, middle, or top third of union wages and whether they “meet” or “completely exceed” benefit expectations. Only those who judge each other “don`t meet” — “literally only a handful,” according to acting director of labor relations Michael Clasen — don`t get a raise. The claim that there is no good font, Bliley writes, is “a lie that has been repeated too often” and that “remains selfish and fraudulent.” Bliley said police are often given additional responsibilities in dealing with social issues such as mental health, addiction and homelessness, given that lawmakers reduce or eliminate funding for programs aimed at them. “We`re still people to people,” Huntley said. “I don`t ask anyone, `What bargaining unit are you in? It says, “How can we help you familiarize yourself with the structures and guidelines?” I`m sure people wouldn`t be left alone. The city negotiates separately with each of its three unions: police, firefighters and everything else. This is the first declaration of deadlock since 2005 in the biennial discussions with the BMEA and an external arbitrator is due to start the hearing on 19 July. . . .
