Jo Daviess County Sergeants are working under a new 5 year Labor Agreement.  After a long delay on the part of the Joint Employers, the Council and the Employers were able to reach the new Agreement after just three bargaining sessions.  Wages shall increase over the term for all members by 13.5%.  Detective Sergeant specialty pay will increase from 3% to 5%.  The local bargaining team, assisted by Labor Council, was further able to increase Holiday pay to double time and one half and enable members to select their work shifts by seniority. The Labor Council, the employees and the Joint Employers shall now enjoy labor peace for a good period of time.
