Henry Co Unit II
By David Nixon, Field Representative - Thursday, August 8, 2019
The Henry County Sheriff CO/TC/Secretary unit has reached a four year contract with wage increases of 2% in each year of the contract. In addition to the 2%, CO’s received equity adjustment of 0.5% in year three and an additional 1% in year four. TC’s and secretaries received an additional equity adjustment of 0.25% in year four. Specialty pay for assistant jail administrator, communicator supervisor, and corporal positions was also increased. The negotiations were the first for this unit as a stand alone group; previously they were included in a single contract with the Sheriff’s police unit. The unit was represented locally by Reid Pettifer, Kevin Clarke, Elaine Helg, Jerrico Lessard and Christine Wrigley. Field Representatives David Nixon and Jay Titus assisted the local group through the lengthy rewrite of the contract.
