Pittsfield resolved their issues in three meetings, working some new language into the Agreement on several issues, along with a $.50/hr. wage increase.  Language on Light Duty, Acting Chief, Ballistic Vests, and Residency was bargained.  The new pay increase represents about 2.5% annual.  The bargaining team was Shane Allen, Jamie Gwartney and John Grogan, along with Field Representative Doug Crawford.
