Congratulations are in order for the Mount Carmel Patrolmen, Sergeants and Telecommunicators.  They have just settled a 3 year deal.  The unit saw excellent gains in wages, increasing their base hourly pay by $2.35 an hour by the end of the contract.  The unit also received improved holiday pay, improved disciplinary language and negotiated new audio surveillance language, as the unit has received lapel cameras.  The unit saw no increase in insurance premiums, but did agree to give up their small education stipend for a one time addition of $300 added to their base pay.
