The Country Club Hills City Council approved the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the City and Local 2720. The contract calls for a 2% wage increase for each year of the 3 year agreement. The contract is due to expire on April 30th 2014 and Local 2720 is preparing to enter into negotiations. The council also approved the hiring of 2 additional Firefighter/Paramedics and a Deputy Fire Chief.
Local 2720 is looking forward to a productive 2013. Although we are in the arbitartion process due to the fact the current city council refuses to act on our expired contract there is hope. In April, there will be a special election and 5 out of the 10 aldermanic positions will be eliminated. All current aldercreatures are required to run in the election. We will keep the web page up to date with all the current news. We would like to wish everyone a safe and healthy new year.
