EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An arbitrator has ruled that police in cash-strapped East St. Louis should get pay raises for three years, retroactive to last year.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the increases will amount to 2.5 percent for the first two years, then 3 percent in 2011.

Paying for the raises could be another matter.

Officers already are waiting to be paid for forced furlough days this year. The arbitrator says they're owed money because those days weren't negotiated into the contract.

Mayor Alvin Parks Jr. and a spokesman for the local Fraternal Order of Police declined to comment on the ruling.
