24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Dave Nixon, Field Representative - Wednesday, December 11, 2013


A new agreement was reached in Lincoln with wage increases totaling 11% over the five year term.  Employees will begin to pay 5% of the cost of employee only health insurance coverage on 5/01/2013.  The parties agreed to a 12 hour shift schedule on an experimental basis; employees will get overtime on the payroll after the pay period in which it was earned. The Agreement also provides new fitness for duty testing and shift selection language.  The Agreement was reached on the doorstep of interest arbitration.  The team was assisted by Field Representative Dave Nixon and Staff Attorney John Weathers.
