             Congratulations to the Bargaining Team which included Matthew Hinsdale, John Friedrich and John Crawford in approaching negotiations that included balancing the different interests of the bargaining unit.  In their first contract and bargaining directly with the new Mayor of Posen, also a Blue Island Police Officer, the Team was able to set long term goals for the unit and achieved a list of long desired wish items such as; vacation time at 12 hours to match the 12 hour schedule, increasing residency to 40 miles outside the Village limits and eliminating the mandate employees live in Illinois, increasing Corporal pay to $1.50 per hour and adding specialty pay for FTO’s at $1.00 per hour.  The compensatory time bank was increased from 120 to 180 hours in the collective bargaining agreement.

             Congratulations to the bargaining committee of Joel Hoffmeyer, Jordan Risley, Jason Moore and Jason Clift for persevering under trying conditions, in spite of a most difficult and less than transparent City Manager.  The bargaining process stalled and eventually, Labor Council Attorney Gary Bailey made our winning case at arbitration before Arbitrator Benn.  Arbitrator Benn awarded on behalf of the Union, however, the City Manager continued in his attempt to manipulate the implementation of the award.  A recent change in City Manager brought a successful end to the process.

       Henry County Deputies

          By David Nixon, Field Representative - Thursday, June 27, 2019

             Henry County Deputies, Investigators, and Sergeants reached a new four-year agreement, with wage increases of 2% in each year of the agreement; also, in addition to the ABI, the wages were increased in the form of market adjustments of 1.5% in year three and 2% in year four.  Annual pay for sergeants and investigators was increased by $500.  The unit also achieved payment for deputies named to serve as officer in charge in specific situations.  The agreement contains a number of changes as the result of the deputies separating their contract from the unit made up of correctional officers, telecommunicators and clerical staff. Prior to this contract, both units were covered under one contract.  Now the contracts are two separate documents.  The Deputy unit team consisted of Chairman Scott Raley, Jon Hornback, Charles “Ben” Franklin, Brian Haars, David Davis and George Marquez.  The unit was assisted in the negotiations by Field Representatives David Nixon and Jay Titus.
