Fremont OKs Labor Deal To Curb Police Medical Benefits
This week, the Fremont City Council approved a two-year labor agreement with city police that will reduce salaries for current officers and cut pension benefits and retiree medical benefits for future officers. Under the agreement, retiree medical benefits for new hires will be limited to $500 monthly. The labor agreement is expected to reduce city spending by nearly $1.6 million this year.
