By Dave Nixon, Field Representative - Wednesday, June 19, 2013


The Edwardsville Police Officers and Sergeants reached a three year Agreement with a seven percent increase in wages over its term.  Subcontracted work will now be paid at the rate of time and one-half; holiday compensatory time was increased; sick leave payment at termination was enhanced, and the replacement of personal property provision was increased.  The contract was also amended to provide for movement of employees with a seven day notice in cases of coverage for unplanned absences.
