LAPD officers want across-the-board pay raises. More than 100 LAPD officers clad in white t-shirts crowded into City Hall yesterday morning to advocate for better contracts.
City leaders acknowledged the sacrifices made by members of the force, but they say the city simply can't afford an across-the-board pay raise. The city's latest offer had been rejected by the union earlier this month, which included more money for overtime, but no boost in base pay.
Last week, Mayor Eric Garcetti released a YouTube video, urging the union to accept the city's latest offer.
