The Waterloo bargaining team engaged in a year-long negotiation with with Employer to secure a very advantageous contract that contained FTO pay for the first time, an increase in detective salary, and general wage increases of 2.7% for each year of a four-year contract.  Insurance costs were kept to a minimum, largely due to a group effort on behalf of all of the Unions in Waterloo to find the best possible plan.
