The bargaining team did an excellent job negotiating a new agreement for their membership which managed to extend through the year 2023 impasse resolution which they do not have by law.  In addition to numerous clerical changes they added payment for both a health club and shooting range to their agreement.  The supervisor's pay was increased by $.20 an hour added to  base and with a market adjustment to their base achieved a 7% increase over the three years of the agreement.  The bargaining team of Chairman John Ervin and Steve Traubitz did an excellent job for their membership.  Field Supervisor Jerry Lieb assisted the team during the negotiations.
