       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.

           Congratulations to the Morrison Police Department on reaching a new three-year Agreement.  Members were able to successfully negotiate many positive language changes which protect the membership.  Increases in eligible family members for Bereavement and Sick Leave, Shift Differential Pay and how members receive Holiday Compensation were obtained.  FTO Pay, Inoculations and Maternity/Paternity Leave language were added to the Agreement, along with respectable wage increases in each year of the contract.

    The membership was represented by Curt Workman and Dan Simmons.  Field Representatives Jay Titus and David Gass assisted the bargaining team throughout negotiations.

       Oak Park Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 8 Statement on RES 20-201

          By ILFOPLC, Staff  - Wednesday, August 26, 2020

                The members of Oak Park Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 8 thank the members of the city council for the opportunity to address you this evening.

                The resolution before you to defund the Oak Park Police Department is misguided, dangerous and discriminatory. It takes the men and women of this department, who have a much lower rate of citizen complaints than surrounding departments, and lumps us in the same category as those departments that ignited the racial unrest that has swept our nation.

                We go above and beyond to fairly and equally serve and protect all citizens of this great community, and this resolution treats us as though our knees were used in that unspeakable crime committed against George Floyd. The resolution punishes your fellow public servants for a crime committed in another state.

                We all saw what happened in Chicago when organized criminals decided to loot businesses at will. We share a border with Chicago. Defunding the Oak Park Police Department will have the same effect as hanging an “open for crime” sign at our village limits.

                This is our home as well as yours. These houses and businesses belong to us and our fellow citizens. This resolution scares us as Oak Park residents. We want to protect our community, but we can't effectively do so if you defund us. Talk to your constituents, especially the ones who quietly go about their law-abiding lives every day. Ask them if they truly want less protection for the homes and businesses for which they have proudly worked hard their entire lives.

                The people who need the police the most are those who live in higher-crime areas. This often means communities of color. Reducing our police force will mean less protection for the very men, women and children this resolution claims to speak for. More people, not less, will suffer if you go through with this.

                Finally, this resolution specifically targets a group of citizens because of the color of uniform they wear. It ignores everything they have done to serve you and your constituents and assumes they are bad people simply because they wear a badge. What do you call a proposal that unfairly singles out a particular group of people? We hope you will call it defeated this evening.

                Thank you.

             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.
