SAN ANTONIO – The city of San Antonio presented the San Antonio Police Officers Association with a new union contract on Friday.

The two sides returned to the table for the first time since November.

Negotiations have been going on for nearly a year and, at times, have been heated.

In this latest offer, the city is offering a pay increase to all officers of 9.5 percent over the past four years and to pay for health care for all officers, while the officers would pay for their dependents.

The city believes it is a fair offer.

Union officials have not responded publicly to the offer.
