The Pinckneyville Officers did an excellent job negotiating wage increases that exceeded the cost of living, adding specialty pay, increasing their sick days, holidays and comp-time, and locking in their 12-hour shifts.  They also successfully bargained for additional training opportunities, uniform reimbursements and the right to grieve all discipline.  Bargaining team of Carl Martin and Gary Remer were assisted by Labor Council Attorney James Daniels.
