Law enforcement union makes pay cut deal with Jerry Brown

The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association has made a furlough deal with Gov. Jerry Brown, leaving only two of the state's 21 bargaining units that have not agreed to a pay cut.

The side-letter deal with CSLEA, inked on Wednesday, mirrors others that have come in in recent days. Workers will take a 4.62 percent pay cut and be furloughed 12 days over the next year.

Only two units -- Professional Engineers in California Government and the International Union of Operating Engineers -- have yet to make a deal.
