Elburn to discuss proposed union pact

Updated 2/10/2012 3:59 PM

Elburn's police sergeants and full-time patrol officers would get raises of 0, 1 and 3 percent, under a proposed three-year contract.

The village board will discuss the contract at its committee of the whole meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at the village hall, 301 E. North St.


The contract calls for no raise in the base pay rates the first year, 1 percent the second and 3 percent the third.

The contract, if approved, would be retroactive to Nov. 1, 2011.

The base rate for an officer with no experience would be $48,960. It would go up to $50,933 on May 1, 2014. An officer with seven years experience would start at $62,158.

The minimum rate for a starting sergeant would be $63,240, rising to $65,788 in 2014.

Officers and sergeants would receive 12 paid holidays per year, and three personal days.

One percent would be added to the base pay of all officers and sergeants who have served with the Elburn department 12 or more years.

Elburn has three sergeants and four full-time patrol officers in the union. It also has 11 part-time officers, but they would not be subject to the contract.
