24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Pete Balderas, Field Representative - Wednesday, August 30, 2017


Pete Balderas assisted Chicago Detention Aides; Victor Cornelious, Marlon Jett, and Joe Escott who were instrumental in negotiating an equity adjustment in the first year of the contract followed by above-average and comparable wages in years 2, 3 and 4.  New overtime language was created to allow full-time Detention Aides to be first in line for overtime opportunities.
