24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

The Jackson County Deputies, Correctional Officers and Telecommunicators locked down a five-year Contract that prevented the Employer from requiring any health insurance premium contributions whatsoever from members through at least December 2017.  During that time, all steps in members' pay plan will increase, on average, by more than 2.5% per year.  The Union's bargaining team also increased the maintenance allowance by $200/yr and the sick-leave bonus by $100/yr.  Throughout the process the team worked closely with all unit members to ensure a smooth, transparent and successful process.  Good job!
