24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Mark Russillo, Field Representative - Tuesday, May 12, 2015


Waterloo Police Officers recently settled a one year contract with a 2.25% wage increase.  The parties agreed to cap health insurance at current levels in order to negotiate in the next bargaining cycle in concert with other employee groups in the City with regard to health insurance. In addition, Officers will now get to the day after Thanksgiving as an additional holiday, Officer choice of venue in discipline cases, and significant changes to vacation request procedures that expedite the request process in the Officers’ favor.  Field Representative Mark Russillo was assisted by Bargaining Committee Members:  David Midkiff and Jeff Prosise.
