Miami-Dade Police and county officials reached a tentative agreement on Friday on a contract, which includes $56 million in concessions from the police and more in health costs.
The two sides struggled for weeks to come up with a deal to save the jobs of 90 officers.
About $18 million in the health care costs will have to be decided by the county commission because the Police Benevolent Association wants to pay five percent, while county negotiators want them to pay 10 percent.
The deal will most probably be voted on by union members in December, and no one will be laid off during the process, officials said.
County officials had said they needed to save about $70 million from the Miami-Dade Police Department budget. Sources told NBC Miami that the two sides had been about $9 million apart on agreeing.
Officials had said they need to slash $239 million from the county's budget.
They had met numerous times in last couple months and the contract expired on Sept. 1. The goal was to get it settled by Nov.1.
On Friday, the union set up 40 brown shirts on mannequins that say "I Died For You" in the front, and placed them around the negotiating room, which is usually filled with off-duty police officers watching the proceedings.
