Second NYC police union settles labor contract with de Blasio administration

The city settled yet another labor deal late last week, leaving three more unformed rank-and-file and a handful of smaller civilian unions left without a contract.

Capital New York reported late Friday that the New York City Detectives Endowment Association ratified a 7-year contract with the de Blasio administration — the second of five police unions to do so in the last year.

The deal comes weeks after ongoing spats between union leadership and City Hall over what police union representatives argued was a lack of support by Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council on policing issues, and an alleged slowdown by cops after two officers were shot dead in December.

Police captains signed an identical contract in January, while lieutenants will vote next week and talks continue with sergeants. The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association entered into arbitration with the city late last year.
