On Monday, February 24, 2020, the City of Portland and Portland Police Association (PPA) bargaining teams held their second bargaining session at the Portland Building. During the session, the parties further discussed ground rules, which are agreements between the parties on how they will conduct bargaining. This meeting was open to the public to attend.
During the bargaining session the parties exchanged written proposals on the logistics for the exchange of proposals and release of information, attendance of City staff and experts at future sessions, session locations, the terms and conditions of tentative agreements, and other procedural matters related to the bargaining process.
The PPA will be hosting the next bargaining session on March 13, 2020. Because the PPA’s facilities are not a public building, the bargaining session will be closed to the public.
