24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Gary Bailey, Attorney - Wednesday, April 4, 2018


Morton Grove Police Officers have a new three-year agreement.  Wage increases of 2.0%, 2.0% and 2.0% were negotiated, with no changes to their health insurance plans.   Morton Grove officers will also maintain their current contribution of 10% of the health insurance premium costs.

The unit bargained an increase in compensatory time and added Labor Day to the list of premium holidays.  Language was added to the Holiday Pay provision so that officers called into work on a premium holiday will be paid double their regular hourly rate of pay while other regularly scheduled to work earn time-and-a-half their regular hourly pay.

The Union Bargaining Team, comprised of Mark Atto, Gus Fasos, Brady Hester and Tim Walsh did an outstanding job.  Attorney Gary Bailey assisted the team in negotiations.
