Morris, police union reach deal on contract
Retroactive pact includes 3-percent pay hikes, city-paid insurance
After months of negotiations, the city of Morris and its police have settled on a contract.
The Morris City Council Monday approved a police contract for May 1, 2012, to April 30, 2015, by a 6-to-1 vote, with Alderman Don Hansen voting no. Alderman Barry Aldrich was absent.
The two major changes that were ultimately settled with the help of a federal mediator were regarding the raise percentage and insurance. The union members will receive a 3 percent raise annually for the length of the contract, and the city will pay all of their health insurance costs, said Mayor Richard Kopczick Wednesday.
