Congratulations to the West Frankfort Captains unit for settling a 3 year deal with the City.  This is the first contract negotiated with the IL FOP Labor Council since the unit joined last year.  The unit made significant gains and rights, and moderate wage increases.  The unit received language honoring PEDA and the Police Officers Bill of Rights, Impasse Resolution, discipline through the grievance procedure and an overhaul of their last wage step.  The unit also received a modification in mandatory overtime compensation and a clear delineation of the chain of command.
