Collective Bargaining

While Texas is a right to work state in 1974 San Antonio voters approved collective bargaining for the City’s Firefighters and Police Officers in separate elections. Since that time, the City and the associations for Firefighters and Police Officers have entered into collective bargaining agreements for addressing pay, benefits, hours and other terms of employment.

  • The current Collective Bargaining Agreement the City and the San Antonio Police Officers Association expires September 30, 2026.
  • The current Collective Bargaining Agreement between the City and the International Association of Firefighters ends December 31, 2024.
