Congratulations to the CCFPD bargaining team, consisting of the Unit President, along with other rank and file officers. They are to be commended for all of the off-duty hours spent in attendance of the team meetings, formulation proposals and countering them, as well. Although the negotiations were strained at times, the parties were able to put aside their differences, and with the assistance of an arbitrator, a three year agreement was achieved. The Unit President is to be applauded for his perseverance, hard work and dedication to the process. This achievement demonstrates the focus of the parties was on a common goal of a fair and equitable agreement for all.
