By Doug Crawford, Field Representative - Thursday, December 27, 2012


Carlyle Police resolved negotiations in two meetings, garnering a 5% settlement on wage increases over two years.  Sergeants pay increased to $1.50 per hour from $1.25 per hour.  All other terms remained status quo.  Bargaining team members Mike Lane and Mark Taylor along with Field Representative Doug Crawford met with the City to bargain the deal.
