To All;

Contract negotiations have been completed and now it is time for ratification.  I have sent the revised contracts to Jay to have them posted on the Union website and I will have copies of them for review at the union hall during ratification.  The changes for this year are as follows.
2% pay increase retroative to September 29th
Established a sick leave pool
Changed PTO language to reflect payroll year like the County handbook
Established clear and defined tuition reimbursement/staff development language
Added Captain language
Added ride-up language for Lieutenant to Medical Supervisor
Removed temporary language in paramedic pay article
Removed language referencing the credit union.
I wish it could have been more, especially the pay increase.  It was another tough year of negotiations and while the economy is turning around, the fire fund will be in bad shape this fiscal year.  We can only hope things turn around for us all next year.  We will be voting on the contract Wednesday and Thursday, October 29th and 30th at the union hall.  We will have someone there from 8am to 8pm both days to make it easier for you all to vote.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Jay.
Thank you
