Congratulations to the Plano Patrol Officers Bargaining Team of Gene Morton. Gene has been actively participating in a dual capacity since the date of Labor Council representation, one in the negotiation process, and two, as a union steward.  We commend Gene for his efforts and time in achieving the goal of an amicable four year Agreement acceptable by both parties.  It had been almost two years in the making, with numerous meetings, mediation and just short of arbitration to reach this Agreement. The issue of insurance was the most time consuming throughout these negotiations.  Although, with some give-and-take by both sides, a mutually acceptable solution was reached.  Needless to say, a tip-of-the hat is warranted to you, Gene, along with a sincere "thank you" for your efforts, perseverance and dedication in attaining this new Agreement.
