24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By James Daniels, Attorney - Thursday, February 6, 2014


After three long years of negotiation, the St Clair Cencom Telecommunicators finally signed off on a Contract that includes wage increases which kept pace with the rate of inflation, removed restrictions on sick leave, added a sick leave incentive of two personal days per year for those who do not use sick leave, shortened the grievance process, clarified travel-compensation and holiday benefits, locked down the ability to trade shifts, removed a two-tiered benefit system, and added protective language concerning the Employer's new drug policy.  They should be congratualted for holding firm and not yielding in the face of overwhelming opposition from the County.
