A tip of the hat to the bargaining team consisting of Kelly Popek, Samantha Hanaman and Jennifer Keith.  An additional recognition goes to Kelly Popek who was in attendance for all of the sessions and tirelessly gave of her time and expertise to bring this Agreement to fruition.  The team has negotiated a five year Agreement consisting of an equal distribution of wage step movement the first year of the contract with attention to the senior employees, due to the inequities in the wage steps, in addition to reasonable and equitable annual increaes each of the following four years.  Insurance opt-out language and renumeration, attached thereto, were also negotiated along with overtime language regarding compensable hours and increased vacation accruals.  All parties are to be commended for their hard work and dedication in attaining this new Agreement.
