I am pleased to report that the Calumet City patrol unit was able to secure a two year contract.  The terms of the deal include an increase in wages of over 3%, a substantial increase in clothing allowance, guaranteed time off, and some additional rights for members subject to discipline.

The settlement was due to hard work and dedication by the bargaining team, which included Jeff McBrayer, Kevin Rapacz, Asher Dimitroff, Adam Zieminski, Andre Black, Mike Serrano, Casey Erickson, Lou Picicco and Mo Plavsa.  They were assisted by General Counsel Tamara Cummings.
