The negotiations for the Island Lake Sergeants bargaining unit were truly an endorsement of good collective bargaining.  The Employer was represented by the Chief of Police, Treasurer and Mayor which allowed for a fair and orderly way of conducting collective bargaining with those who can make decisions.  We were fortunate that since the Patrol collective bargaining agreement had recently been agreed to, we utilized many of the same gains, saving both parties many hours at the table.  We achieved for the term of the Labor Agreement a significant gain in compensation.
