Brown County Deputies
By Jerry Lieb, Field Supervisor - Monday, December 10, 2018
The bargaining team successfully negotiated wage increases of 3% in each of the three years of the agreement, in addition to a new 12.5-year step which is $.30 an hour above the 10-year step. In addition to the wages, the team agreed to incorporate post-shooting drug testing language in addition to a new provision on “Tests to be Conducted”.
As a side note, the team proposed having the County pay for the FOP Legal defense plan, but the County did not want that in the contract but did state they would reimburse the deputies for one-half of the costs.
