At mediation, the team secured 2.0% wage increases in each year of the 3-year deal, with no increases to health insurance contributions.  This represents a better first year wage increae than most other unions in Village were able to secure.  We addressed comp time issues and agreed to drug/alcohol testing for officer-involved shootings before the new Illinois law passed.  Mike Hynek, Erik Morey, Mike Lazowski were joined mid-negotiations by Tony Crtis and Kyle Smith after two original bargaining team members filed for duty-disability pensions.  Tony and Kyle caught up quickly and the entire team should be commended for resolving this new contract.
