24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

Livingston County Probation gained a 6% increase in wages over the course of a three-year contract.  Unfortunately, wage gains came at a cost, as the employer demanded an increase in employee insurance premiums to 20%.  Overall, Probation weathered a horrific storm, whereas non-union employees faced similar insurance increases without commensurate wage increases.  Illinois FOP Labor Council Field Representative Keith Turney was quoted as saying "Bargaining team members Eric Mund and Mark Salata represented their membership with a focused dedication that took into account every aspect of their job and the interests of every member of their bargaining unit."  A signing bonus, expedited grievance procedure and job posting requirements enhanced the units current benefits as well.
