After a protracted period of bargaining with the County of LaSalle, an amicable and mutually beneficial contract was reached. Wages (with retroactivity) will increase 12.75% over the term of the Agreement. Also the salary schedule was reduced from 18 steps to 16 with no reduction of salary and a $2,500 wage adjustment will be implemented for those with 10 or more years of service. Remaining contract improvements include, establishing new overtime language that segregates Bond Ct from all other OT; ensuring that 5 vacation days can be carried over to next year; creating an annual insurance opt out of $2,000; and incorporated OIS language and SAMHSA standards for drug testing. Congrats to bargaining team members Donna Ortiz and Tom Kramirsic for their persistence and perseverance in ensuring that workplace conditions were improved.
