Coles County Civilians
By Mark Russillo, Field Representative - Wednesday, October 7, 2020
Coles County Civilians settled a 4-year contract with a 2% increase each year coupled with a series of market adjustments separately totaling $4,000 for each employee over the course of the contract. Civilians also negotiated shift differential for 2nd and 3rd shift, and longevity of $200 on each anniversary date each year. In addition, the unit added nieces and nephew to the “definition of immediate family” for bereavement purposes; and changed the telecommunicators shift from 12 to 8 hours. Field Representative Mark Russillo assisted these Bargaining Committee Members: Sandi Thiele and Anna Goddard.
