State, conservation police officers agree on contract
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- A collective bargaining agreement has been reached between the state and the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council.
Gov. Bruce Rauner's office says Friday that the deal includes a four-year wage freeze and no layoffs of conservation police officers.
The council represents conservation officers.
Rauner's General Counsel Dennis Murashko says the sides reached a compromise that continues to protect the state's parks and other natural resources.
