Congratulations to the Vermilion County Deputy unit on the settlement of their most recent contract!  The deal was for three years and included a 6.75% increase in wages over the term of the contract, loosened benefit time restrictions and an increase in the longevity scale.  The unit did have to concede an extension of their probationary period for all new hires. The negotiations took place in Danville, Illinois.  The bargaining team of John Watson, Ryan Goodner and James Wright were assisted by Field Rep Dan Bailey.
