24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

After a long negotiation, the Jefferson County Correctional unit succeeded in winning three years of 3% wage increases, and a $1350 bonus.  They also locked in numerous advantageous benefits including increased bereavement leave and expanded residency, and their only concession was that their insurance contribution will increase to $40 per month.  They should be commended for their hard work, dedication and strong commitment to defending members' benefits and rights.
