The members of the Edwardsville Police unit recently completed a successor 3-year Agreement. The new Agreement provides for increased wages and a revised sick leave buy-back provision for new employees.  Other changes address drug and alcohol testing, sick leave and personal day provisions.  The local unit was represented by Lodge President Matt Breihan, Kent Fant, Justin Towell, Barry Jones, John Arendell, Greg Bauer and Doug Renth.  The team was assisted by Labor Council Field David Nixon.
