The Omaha Police Union contract is automatically extended through 2014 with no changes, a judge ruled last week.

District Court Judge Joseph Troia ruled that the City of Omaha failed to give appropriate notice that it intended to begin bargaining for 2014. The judge’s ruling settles a lawsuit brought by the union.

Mayor Jean Stothert said in a press release that the city will appeal the ruling, saying she wants to make pension changes beyond what was negotiated four years ago.

Police union president John Wells said in his own press release that the union is ready to move beyond the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, the city sent the union a letter this week saying it intends to open negotiations for 2015.
