Zion Telecommunicators have reached a new 3 year Agreement with the City.  Bargaining was completed in just one session.  Wages for the term of the Agreement increased 6% for all employees. Senior employees at the top two steps of the wage scale received an additional 2% and 3% respectively. All wages retroactive to May 2012.  Top pay will now be achieved in ten years instead of fifteen.  Employees will now be able to accrue 40 hours of Compensatory Time, where they had none before. Uniform allowance was increased and the work schedule was incorporated into the contract.
