District 150 Board considering new school police union contract
The District 150 School Board will consider a contract next Tuesday with the district’s police union. Members of the Police Benevolent Protective Local 114 have been working without a contract for the last three years, and had their title changed to school resource officers in that time. Union president Monica Wilson says the last contract with the district expired in June of 2010:
“It has been long coming. I think it gives us and the district a little more sense of security I think that we’re all trying to stay on the same page here, and I think that’s kind of our end goal,” Wilson says.
Wilson says the contract, if approved by the board, would last to 2015. She says parts of the proposed deal would be retroactive to 2010. Specific details of the proposed contract were not available. Wilson says the deal would affect about 20 members in the school police union.
