Congratulations to the Wabash County Sheriff's Department for a successful negotiation!  The unit was able to secure a five-year contract, with a substantial wage increase in the first year.  Additionally, the unit was able to secure vacation buyback language, an increase in vacation time after 21 years, and an increase in the unit's uniform allowance among other things.  The negotiations were held in Mt. Carmel, and the unit was represented by D-Ray Etzkorn and Peter Wood, with the assistance of Amy Rose.
