24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

After eighteen months of negotiation, the SIUC Patrol bargaining team successfully won wage increases of 8% over the course of a three-year retroactive contract.  Additionally, they strengthened their ballistic vest and uniform/equipment benefits, clarified their disciplinary appeal language, guaranteed themselves the right to bid on newly-created positions in the future, and fought off a strong attempt by the Employer to reduce their accruable comp time by 50%. They deserve credit for providing exemplary representation to the rest of the unit during extremely uncertain times.
