          By Jerry Lieb, Field Supervisor - Wednesday, August 28, 2019

             The bargaining team of Matt Hunt, Jon Roseman, Shane Cole and chaired by Joe Mannix, did an excellent job on behalf of their membership accomplishing a change in their work schedule getting off a 6-2, 6-3 eight hour schedule after 15 years, and moving to a 4-2, 4-3 nine-hour schedule.  Many clerical changes were made adding safeguards for Military Leave, drug testing and adding language for the K-9 officers.  The team agreed to a two-year deal maintaining their health insurance and increasing their pay by 4.25% over two years bringing their top pay to $82,000.  Field Supervisor Jerry Lieb assisted the team during the negotiations.

       First Responder Mental Health Bill Signed into Law

          By ILFOPLC, Staff  - Friday, August 16, 2019

             General Counsel Tamara Cummings thanking Governor Pritzker for signing HB 2766 into law.  HB 2766 is the Labor Council’s mental health bill, which was supported by all of the FOP organizations.  The law will make it easier for First Responders to seek and receive mental health treatment and support.   The bill also expanded the scope of a previous Labor Council bill which was signed into law and makes it illegal for an Employer to take negative action against a law enforcement officer who loses his or her FOID card simply because he or she sought mental health treatment.
