Litchfield Patrolmen and Sergeants settled a 4-year contract with wage increase of 8.5% over the term of the agreement and added a 20-year longevity bracket at 3%.  They also won choice of venue in discipline cases.  There were clarifications made to the 12-hour shift language/schedule and additional flexibility regarding compensatory time and sick leave buy-back provisions.  A stipend of $100 is now given to certified Rangemasters.  Field Representative Mark Russillo assisted Bargaining Committee Members:  Officer Kenneth Ryker, Officer Thomas Melchert and Sergeant Dan Evans.
