City, guild negotiating concessions

Spokane Mayor Mary Verner said her staff was continuing to meet late Thursday with the Spokane Police Guild on a proposed concession agreement to prevent at least some of the layoffs planned in the Spokane Police Department.

Verner turned down a guild concession plan last week, but the union submitted a new one Wednesday.

City Administrator Ted Danek said late Wednesday that the plan was an improvement over the earlier plan.

“I am very encouraged that we’re going to have a workable proposal that the Police Guild will vote on,” he said

The City Council is expected to approve a budget as early as Dec. 13. Without a deal, 35 guild members will lose their jobs on Christmas.
