24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

A tip-of-the-hat to the Bargaining Team Committee of Chris Wilder, Robert Lewis and Aaron Hartman.   The team has negotiated a 3 year Agreement consisting of wage increases, commensurate with the conversion of insurance premiums from the current "flat rate" dollar amount, to a percentage rate in the second year of the Agreement.  Although the negotiations became strained at times, an acceptable agreement was achieved, along with the Mayor's assistance in the final hours. With all said and done, all parties are to be commended for their hard work, perseverance and dedication in attaining this new Agreement.
