Final community listening session on police union contract negotiations is next week

September 7, 2022

The final community listening session to receive input on topics related to a new three-year contract with the Police Federation of Minneapolis is now scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 14.

This past spring Mayor Jacob Frey convened an internal workgroup focused on collaboration and developing a shared set of priorities in advance of the 2023-2025 police union contract negotiations. The group, composed of Council President Andrea Jenkins, Council Member Lisa Goodman, Council Member Aisha Chughtai, Council Member LaTrisha Vetaw and City staff, meets monthly and is hosting these listening sessions as an extension of its work.

Community listening session
6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14
Whittier Park Recreation Center, 425 West 26th St.

The City will explain the negotiation process and hold workgroups where people can collaborate on ideas related to the contract. This process will help inform the City in its negotiations with the Police Federation. Find more information about the negotiations on the City’s website.

Earlier this year, the City approved a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the Police Federation that retroactively covered years union members worked without a contract. That agreement expires Dec. 31, 2022.
