Oglesby Police and Telecommunicators negotiated a four-year deal worth 8% on base wages.  They added four new longevity steps at 17, 18, 19, and 20 years, phased in over the first three years.  Single insurance cover remains at 100% paid, however family coverage increased slightly.  Clothing allowance increased to $850 annually.  Bargaining reps were Mike Padilla, Bob Stone, and Hugo Gonzalez with Field Representative Doug Crawford.

Contract negotiations with the Village of Lansing have historically been a difficult task. This round of negotiations was no exception.  Telecommunicators in Lansing faced steep obstacles in achieving their goals of improved pay and better working conditions as the Village demanded concessions and take backs.  Overall, the union was successful in achieving modest gains, but the work was laborious.  Ultimately, the union recouped some sick leave benefits that were lost in the last round of negotiations, improvements in the scheduling of days off and distribution of overtime and wage increases totaling 5.25% over the three-year life of the contract.  The bargaining team consisted of Joe Augustyniak, Cynthia Griffiths and Carlos Devila. Labor Council Field Representative Keith Turney assisted.

Congratulations to the Forest Park Patrol and Sergeants Bargaining Team! The Team has negotiated a three-year Agreement consisting of fair and equitable wage increases, language clean-up, Compensatory Time additions and payout, Insurance Opt-Out language and stipend increases.  Although the relationship throughout the bargaining process was amiable, there were some stumbling blocks.  With hard work and dedication of the parties, a fair and equitable Agreement was achieved.  All parties are to be commended for their professionalism shown during the process.  A tip-of-the-hat to all.
