       Adams Co Juvenile Detention Center

          By Jerry Lieb, Field Supervisor - Wednesday, February 19, 2020

            Labor Committee Chairman Lamarrio Rodgers did an excellent job in the representation of his membership.  Changes in the pay plan for part-timers and non-detention officers were made, compensating for the increase in the minimum age.  All the members received an adjustment of $.38 an hour to their base, which reflected the 10% co-pay on their health insurance and then received across the board increase of 10% over four years of their deal.  The membership will not be required to pay the 10% co-pay until January 1, 2021.  The team was assisted by Field Supervisor Jerry Lieb during the negotiations.

             The St. Clair Corrections unit deserves great credit for their determination to win a fair raise at interest arbitration which exceeded the rate of inflation and offset their insurance contribution.  They also set a new standard by earning the right to grieve their discipline, be fairly evaluated, and receive their anniversary steps on a more regular basis than before.

       McHenry County Peace Officers

          By Richard Stomper, Field Representative - Tuesday, February 4, 2020

             The negotiations and med-arb were dominated by the two major economic issues of wages and insurance.  The insurance issue was extremely important to Union members, both for the active members, and for current and potential retirees.  The Union argued that insurance increases and plan changes were not justified.  Having joined a broad consortium for insurance purposes, in recent years McHenry County has seen increases in insurance premiums that have been below the rate of inflation, meaning that costs in real terms have dropped.  The Union was able to prevail on the insurance issue.  Wages increases were 2.2%, 2%, and 2% over the three year term.  Matt Matusek, Jen Garafol, Trevor Vogel, Make Quick did an excellent job bargaining these issues.

          By Jerry Lieb, Field Supervisor - Tuesday, January 21, 2020

             The Patrol Sergeants unit which recently separated from the correction sergeant unit did an excellent job on behalf of their unit.  They established an extremely good relationship with the Employer that allowed them to achieve adding the 10% ($800 annual) health insurance co-pay premium to their new base.  The percentage increase of 5.5% over the next two years was negotiated to the new base.  With the addition of reimbursements for health and gun club participation of $300 per year and improving their sick leave buy-back to full pay for days earned past their 90-day cap.  The bargaining team Chaired by Brian Curran and Bryan Boden represented their members well.  They were assisted by Field Supervisor Jerry Lieb.
