A tentative agreement has been reached between Iroquois County and members of the Fraternal Order of Police union. Details are not available, but a ratification vote is likely by the December County Board meeting.
An agreement would find at least one of three union negotiations put aside for the next three years.
An agreement was reached with a mediator during a six-hour session Wednesday, according to County Board Vice-Chairman Kyle Anderson.
"This could be ratified in December. It's a fair agreement; we didn't have to go to arbitration but instead through a mediator got it resolved," Anderson told WGFA News. "We're as pleased as we can be."
Anderson said it says a lot when we can get this done without having to go to binding arbitration.
