24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Richard Stomper, Field Representative - Tuesday, October 4, 2016


Steve Kurzawa, Maria Durham, and Gary Fenilli assisted in the negotiations for this Agreement.  The main feature of the agreement is an 8.75% increase in wages over the four year duration.  In addition, the members will receive one extra paid holiday per year, equivalent to about an additional 0.4% wages, an increase which is also pensionable.  Four weeks vacation will now be earned after 14, instead of 15 years.  An improvement in the uniform allowance was also obtained allowing it to pay for a duty firearm.
