City Reaches Tentative Labor Agreement with Police Union

Council to Vote on New Contract July 25

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi and the Corpus Christi Police Officers Association (CCPOA) have tentatively agreed on a new contract. 

The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is a contract between the City of Corpus Christi and the CCPOA that governs wages, hours, and working conditions for police officers. Representatives from both sides have been meeting since May 4 and reached an agreement in 34 days, a record for the City. The proposed four-year agreement was ratified by a 95% majority vote of the CCPOA membership. It will be presented to the City Council on July 25 for consideration of approval.

“We began the negotiations with a desire to reach a fair contract for our membership. I want to thank the City for working with us toward a unified goal that will allow the City to continue to recruit and retain the very best police officers,” CCPOA President R. Scott Leeton said. 

Pending Council approval, the new contract would take effect on October 1.
