New pact includes only minor
MINOOKA — Minooka Police Union 348 has a new three-year contract, thanks to the hard work of union representatives and a village committee.
Village Administrator Dan Duffy, Village Finance Manager John Harrington and Police Chief Justin Meyer were successful in negotiating a collective bargaining agreement with the union in just over three months.
“It was a very civil and relatively quick negotiation,” Duffy said.
The contract was negotiated without outside counsel, saving taxpayers the cost of attorney fees and negotiating in a quick fashion, said Duffy.
