City of Opa-locka, Fla., police officers rejected a take-home vehicle program offered by the police chief that would have cost them $50 per paycheck, or $1,300 per year, the Miami Herald reported.

The union representing the officers threatened a lawsuit for unfair labor practices if the plan was put in place without negotiations. It said officers in neighboring jurisdictions don’t pay to take home their patrol cars, or pay much less. The chief backed off, agreeing to negotiate the agreement during a new bargaining session.
