Rolling Meadows aldermen Tuesday approved the city's last remaining collective bargaining agreement that was being negotiated this year with employee groups -- this one with police.

The three-year agreement with the Rolling Meadows Police Association, representing officers, sergeants and commanders, begins Jan. 1, 2019, and runs through Dec. 31, 2021. The deal provides annual salary increases of 2.5 percent, which mirrors the agreement aldermen approved Nov. 27 with firefighter/paramedics and lieutenants, and first-time contracts in July with two employee unions including secretaries, inspectors and public works staff.

The police contract, which was ratified by union membership, also awards extra pay for longevity, those assigned to be on-call 24/7 and field training officers.
