The Robinson Patrol and Sergeants bargaining unit settled a successor agreement with the City.  The unit received increases in insurance premium coverage, a modification in how they may use compensatory time, modifications in bereavement leave and an increase in their clothing allowance.  The unit also received substantial wage increases; 2.5% in year 1 and 2, 3% in year 3 and 4, and a merged step 27 and 28.   The unit did make a concession however, agreeing to two longevity steps for new hires.  Negotiations were held in Robinson and the unit was assisted by E. Ryan Hall.
