Welcome Patrolmen of Red Bud!  This is a new unit with the Labor Council and they have successfully completed a rather long, and at times, tumultuous initial contract.  The new contract includes major upgrades for the unit.  The unit improved their working conditions and they are no longer employees at will.  The unit also obtained a grievance procedure, a disciplinary structure, arbitration rights, layoff language, long term commitments on health insurace and many more new protections and rights.  In addition, the unit received a 5.75% wage increase during the term of the contract.
