The current contract between the City of Minneapolis and the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis is ending soon. A new contract is needed. The process we are using is collective bargaining. State law requires public employers, like Minneapolis, to meet and negotiate on topics deemed by state law to be mandatory subjects of bargaining.
The groups involved with this collective bargaining process includes:
- The City of Minneapolis
- Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis (POFM)
The contract must comply with federal, state, and local regulations. The collective bargaining agreement for this process is Chapter 179A (Public Employment Labor Relations Act) of the Minnesota Statutes.
During this process the public is informed of:
- Public meeting times, dates, and locations (see Minn. Stat. §179A.14)
- Proposals (public documents only)
- Supporting documents (when allowed by Minnesota Statue Chaper 13, Government Data Practices)
