             Congratulations to the Village of Milan Police Department on reaching a new 5-year Agreement.  Members were able to successfully negotiate many positive language changes that protect the membership.  An increase in Dental and Eye Care, Compensatory time for new hires and Education Reimbursement were achieved.  FTO pay was also added to the Agreement.  Due to the pandemic, both parties agreed to reopen negotiations in the spring of 2021 for additional economic benefits. 

             The membership was represented by Daren James, Daniel DeBacker; Richard Downing and Nathan Lundeen.  Field Representative Jay Titus assisted the bargaining team throughout negotiations.

       Fox Lake

          By Richard Stomper, Field Representative - Monday, August 3, 2020

             A one year contract was negotiated in view of the current uncertainty.  The Village moved to a high deductible health plan, but increased wages by $2500 for all employees to compensate for the increased deductible.  In addition there was a 2.8% increase and a compression of one step, from 8 to 7 in the wage matrix.  Importantly the department will move to a 12-hour shift on a trial basis with the possibility that this change, desired by the great majority of unit members, will become permanent.

       South Jacksonville

          By Jerry Lieb, Field Supervisor - Monday, July 28, 2020

    The bargaining team chaired by Andrew Morgan and Brian Wilson did an excellent job coming to the table to address just the important stuff without any fluff.  This approach was appreciated by the Employer, but due to the pandemic, we agreed to a one-year rollover with a 2% increase.  The Village asked for nothing in exchange.  The team was assisted by Field Supervisor Jerry Lieb during the negotiations.

       Rock Valley Community College

          By Kevin Krug, Field Supervisor - Friday, July 24, 2020

    These negotiations were certainly challenging with the economic impact of the COVID-19, but the team did prevail to show how under paid this group of Officers were. Our bargaining had to turn to Zoom meetings, which in itself has some adjustments in the style of negotiating successor Labor Agreements. We want to thank the unit leadership for their commitment and dedication to the process.
