Santa Fe police and the city administration are no longer at an impasse following Tuesday night’s vote by the Santa Fe Police Officers Association to ratify a new labor contract.

Police were the final holdout in a round of labor negotiations with the city’s three employee unions ordered by the City Council in budget approvals for the fiscal year that ends June 30.

Wages are not affected by the contract change, but police union workers agreed to give up some incentives and other benefits.

Police union President Adam Gallegos said union members who voted at an emergency meeting favored the contract by a margin of nearly 3-to-1.
