Congratulations to the Bargaining Team of Mark Frey, Colin Gaffney, Brad Hoops and Shaun Knight.  The Team has negotiated a three-year Agreement consisting of fair market wage increases with an additional twenty (20) year step added to the wage matrix in lieu of the longevity stipend as provided for in the previous Agreement, all discipline grievable along with slight increases to the insurance premiums.  Although the relationship throughout the bargaining process was amiable, there were some stumbling blocks.  With hard work and dedication by the parties, a fair and equitable Agreement was achieved.  All parties are to be commended for their professionalism shown during the process.
