The SIUC Carbondale Officers ensured that their wages kept pace with the rate of inflation by winning at arbitration a 7% increase over the first three years of the Contract, and the Corporals won 9% in wages over the first three years of the Contract.  Both units have the right to reopen the issue of wages in FY14 if the general campus increase for that year is less than 2.5%  Both units also successfully avoided the Employer's attempt to impose four furlough days on the unit members.
