BAYONNE -- In what local officials are calling an unprecedented event, the City of Bayonne has come to agreement with four of its public-safety unions on a five-year contract.

In voting to approve the four agreements with the Bayonne Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the Police Superior Officers Association, the Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association, and the Fire Superior Officers Association, the City Council secured an annual savings of about $400,000 from healthcare costs, and gave an 8 percent increase to each group over the five-and-a-half-year contracts or about a 1.8 percent annual increase in wages.

The five-and-half-year contract also aligns with the changed municipal budget year which went from a fiscal year to a calendar year in 2011. The new contracts expire on Dec. 31, 2018.
