The Carbondale TC's showed determination and intefrity as they negotiated with the City for over a year in order to lock down a three year contract with wage increases of 2.25% per year, as well as language confirming that shifts will be bid by seniority, and that missed breaks and meals will be compensated at the overtime rate, and that -- for the first time -- comp time may be accrued in lieu of overtime.  They are to be commended for all of their hard work!
