Congratulations to the negotiating team from the White County Sheriff's Department.  This unit was able to successfully negotiate a fair increase for the first two years and an above average wage increase for the last two years.  The unit was able to clarify language regarding overtime, sick leave, holidays and emergencies.  Additionally, the unit was willing to modify the new hire vacation accrual and increase the maximum out-of-pocket monthly insurance contribution.  The negotiating team was Wayne McKenzie, Jarod McKenzie, Ryan Richards, Drew Grider, and Justin Spencer and they were assisted by Attorney Amy Rose.
