City Reaches Collective Bargaining Agreement With Correction Officers

Solon's correction officers will receive raises in the next three years but will pay more toward their health car.

Solon has reached a three-year collective bargaining agreement with its correction officers.

The agreement will give the officers raises over the next three but they will have to contribute more toward their health care, according to the agreement.

The new deal is effective Jan. 1 and runs through the end of 2015. The agreement was approved by Solon City Council on Monday night.

Correction officers, which work in the Solon jail, will receive wage increases of 2.25 percent in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Employee health care costs such as out-of-pocket deductibles and prescription fees will increase.

The agreement is basically the same one approved by the patrolmen in February.

Mayor Susan Drucker thanked the members of the Ohio Patrolmen's Benevolent Association for working toward a deal without the need for lawyers and negotiators.

Police Chief Chris Viland thanked Drucker and the city for leading the effort and promoting an environment of cooperation.
