At mediation, the team secured 2.0% wage increases in each year of the 3-year deal, with no increases to health insurance contributions.  This represents a better first year wage increae than most other unions in Village were able to secure.  We addressed comp time issues and agreed to drug/alcohol testing for officer-involved shootings before the new Illinois law passed.  Mike Hynek, Erik Morey, Mike Lazowski were joined mid-negotiations by Tony Crtis and Kyle Smith after two original bargaining team members filed for duty-disability pensions.  Tony and Kyle caught up quickly and the entire team should be commended for resolving this new contract.

Dedicated Team Members Tom Dransoff and Don Silva remained focused and perservered to insure that the Contract was fair and balanced and compensated the members for their hard work and dedication.  The Team negotiated a competitive salary adjustment of 7.5% over the duration of the Agreement plus a lump sum equity bonus for their members each year of the contract.  The Team also insured that all discipline has the right to arbitration and also increased the sick leave buyback benefits plus giving members more control over saving and investing for post-employment health care.
