Arlington Heights has inked a new contract with firefighters awarding them raises averaging 2.35% over the course of the three-year deal.

The labor agreement was approved unanimously Monday by the village board and ratified earlier by members of Arlington Heights Firefighters Association, Local 3105 of the International Association of Fire Fighters.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Under the agreement, employees will get a 2.5% raise in 2020, 2.3% in 2021 and 2.25% in 2022. They'll also pay more toward insurance beginning in 2022, from an employee contribution of 12% to 14%. Union members will also get a $400 signing bonus because a new contract was voluntarily agreed-upon before the old one expired.

The new agreement runs from Jan. 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2022.
