Members of the Round Lake Beach bargaining unit signed a three year deal effective January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2016. Wages were increased 2.5% across the board for each year of the Agreement retroactive to January 1, 2014.  The Agreement sets dollar insurance caps for the duration of the Agreement.  The Union secured a restriction on the Employer’s ability to split days off.  The parties agreed to eliminate the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners from any role in the appeal of discipline.  All discipline beyond written reprimands is reviewed through the grievance/arbitration procedure
