24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Joe Kalita, Field Representative - Wednesday, May 10, 2017


Glencoe Public Safety Officers have completed bargaining for their second contract with the Labor Council.  The duration of the contract is four years and wages will increase 10.25% over the term.  This increase will help the unit remain competitive with wages in the area.  The members made gains in use of Holiday Time and in discipline regarding responding to department call-outs.  Although insurance premiums for members increased marginally, a new tier of employee plus one was added for member use.  The agreement is fair and equitable for both parties and was reached in a short period of time in an amicable manner.
