Union contract accepted

Thursday, April 25, 2013

At their April 15 meeting, Village trustees approved a collective bargaining agreement between the Village and Laborers Local 159. The four-year contract applies only to full and part-time Village employees who work in one of three job classifications: public works technician, public works technician I and building inspector/water plant operator.

Village employees had first filed a petition to unionize in May 2012, and an initial proposal from the Local 159 was submitted to the Village in November. A series of meetings followed to discuss issues and terms.

“The negotiating committee believes [the contract] is fair to both parties in the agreement,” said Mike Miller, Village Administrator.
