24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Doug Crawford, Field Representative - Monday, November 10, 2014


Pittsfield settled in mediation with the help of FMCS Commissioner Jerry Meehan.  Wage increase of $.50/hr atb, new family sick leave added, and limited random drug testing, as part of a city wide pool.  What did not change was the $150/month family insurance premium.  Wage reopeners are scheduled for 2015 and 2016.  Shane Allen and Jamie Gwartney, along with Field Rep Doug Crawford negotiated the deal.
