S.D. City Police Officers Propose Joining CalPERS
The San Diego Police Officers Association has developed a proposal that would allow city police officers to join the CalPERS health program. Union leaders said the plan could save the city $3 million annually and reduce its $1.1 billion deficit for retiree health care by $16 million. The union has asked the San Diego Office of the Mayor to begin labor negotiations early to address any issues with the proposal. The next contract is scheduled to begin July 1.
