The parties completed negotiations for a sucessor Labor Ageement prior to the existing Labor Agreement expired. The team was successful in increasing compensatory time. Expanded who can provide a medical certification when requested to include nurse practitioner and nurses assistant. Expanded the use of sick time per the The Illinois Employee Sick Leave Act (Public Act 99-0841). Improved text for selection of an arbitrator. Want to thank the team that worked hard in presenting reasonable proposals to the Employer and having explanations why the Employer should accept the changes.
