Emergency manager: 2 Flint police unions OK deals

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Flint's state-appointed emergency financial manager says two police unions passed tentative contract agreements with the city following talks about potential concessions.

Michael Brown tells The Flint Journal that members of the Flint sergeants union and the lieutenants and captains union voted on the proposed contracts Thursday. The city's public safety unions have been operating under expired contracts for more than two years.

Brown said Friday that he expects to sign both contracts soon to make them official. Contract details weren't immediately released.

The city faces a projected $25 million deficit and declining cash flow. Last week, Brown announced a tentative agreement on potential contract concessions with a union representing city firefighters.
