After a year and a half of negotiations, the city of Boston and the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association have agreed to a new five-year contract worth $82.3 million. The deal includes retroactive pay hikes for the city's officers, as well as some key reforms that Mayor Michelle Wu has been pushing for since she was a candidate.
Adam Reilly is joined by Larry Calderone, president of the BPPA, and Yawu Miller, the former senior editor of the Bay State Banner, to discuss the scope of the reforms involved, how the BPPA and city were able to hammer out a deal without going to arbitration and what the political implications of the agreement could be for Wu moving forward.
