ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) - Alachua County Sheriff’s officials are back at the table negotiating a new contract with the police benevolent association.

After hours of negotiations and a two-hour caucus, ASO and PBA officials did not make any progress in finding common ground.

In today’s meeting, ASO officials proposed a 3% pay increase while Jody Branaman, NCFL PBA president says, they were already contractually obligated to a 2.5% raise that they didn’t follow through with in October.

Branaman also claims that while they are offering this raise, it comes at the cost of taking away two holidays.

One win for the PBA is the Sheriff considering allowing deputies from outside of the county to take their ASO-issued vehicles home.

The two parties are slated to meet again in May.
