Despite the passing of the first tentative deadline, neither side reports any progress in labor negotiations between Salt Lake City and its police officers.
Both Mayor Palmer DePaulis and police union officials said they wanted to reach an agreement by Monday. But the two sides have not met since last week.Police Association President David Greer said he modified the union's offer, shaving $125,000 from it and making raises less lucrative to officers earning in the middle of the scale.
He said the city has done little but rearrange its numbers.
City negotiators could not be reached for comment Monday. DePaulis said he expected to be briefed on the talks soon.
Greer said the sides are about $375,000 apart. The union wants a 4 percent cost-of-living raise, with more of it going to entry-level officers. The city originally proposed a 1 percent cost-of-living raise with another 2.75 percent merit increase and a 1 percent bonus.
A federal mediator is working with both sides. Although both sides wanted to reach an accord by Monday, the City Council has until June 4 to adopt the city's final budget.
