24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Jerry Lieb, Field Supervisor - Thursday, March 29, 2018


After many years of waiting for the state budget impasse to be resolved, the Attorney General Investigators were able to achieve a contract settlement providing a 4% increase over the four years of the agreement.  In addition, they added language providing them with retiree identification for anyone with at least ten years of service and increased to above entry pay level from two years to five years.  The team chaired by Eric Cooper, along with teammates Eddie Gamble, Tom Berola and Tom Symanski showed exceptional patience during a difficult time in this State's history bringing back and agreement supported by their membership.  Field Supervisor Jerry Lieb assisted the team during the negotiation.
