Progression step increases will be reinstated starting January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013. Employees eligible for step increases in January 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012 will receive that step adjustment effective July 1, 2012

All steps for Police and Sergeant classes and uniform allowances will be increased by the same percentage equal to the increase needed to raise the 36-months Police Officers' rate to the average top patrol rate of the police officers in the Stanton Group cities. The average top patrol rate will be the top base (top step and top merit) plus top longevity but will exclude all other differentials. The November 2012 Stanton analysis potential adjustment will be retroactive to January 1, 2012. The November 2013 Stanton analysis potential adjustment will be retroactive to July 1, 2013.

The cities in the Stanton Group are all seven (7) county metro Twin Cities suburban cities with police departments that are represented by a union certified by BMS, and have a 2010 census population in excess of 25,000.

The Stanton calculation will occur on November 1st of the applicable year provided that at least 75% of the applicable cities have a settlement in place for the current year. In the event 75% of the cities are not settled by that date, the calculation will occur upon settlement of 75%.
