By Tamara Cummings, General Counsel - Tuesday, October 10, 2017


The Labor Council is pleased to announce that after many months of hard work, the Calumet City Patrol Unit was able to reach an agreement with the Employer for a four year contract, lasting until 4/30/20.    The members will receive COLA  based salary increases each year of the agreement, with a floor of 1.5% and a ceiling of 2.5%.  Also, members in the position of sergeant and above will have additional money added to their base pay each year and any member who does not use a sick day during the fiscal year will be rewarded with a bonus day.  The parties also committed to meeting regularly to discuss and make recommendations regarding the promotional process and other issues of concern. General Counsel Tamara Cummings worked with Kevin Rapacz, Jeff McBrayer, Mo Plavsa, Casey Erickson, Bill Slough, Mike Serrano, Asher Dimitroff, Andre Black and Bob Hynek to reach this agreement.
