SF police union approves labor concessions

San Francisco's police union has approved a package of labor concessions aimed at helping the city close its $500 million budget deficit.

Officers have agreed to delay a 2 percent pay raise they were supposed to get this year. They will also take six unpaid furlough days.

"A lot of my members feel that the city squanders a lot of money, so why do they have to keep balancing the budget on the backs of city employees?," said Gary Delagnes with the Police Officers Association. "On the other hand, I think most of my cops are saying, "We've done pretty well, and we understand, and we want to be part of the solution, and we'll do what we can here, but we're getting tired of this."

The police officers' vote means Muni workers are the only employee union in the city which has not approved concessions.
