County commission approves union agreements

A month after supporting a tentative agreement, St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners made official its agreements with nine county unions.

Commissioners approved the three-year proposals, which had already been ratified by the respective unions.

In all, the nine unions represent more than 100 employees; nearly two-thirds of whom work for the sheriff’s department.

County administrator Teresa Doehring noted that most contracts feature small raises – 2 percent in most cases.

The unions with which the labor agreements have been reached are: E-911 Telecommunicators’ Association; Police Officers Association of Michigan corrections unit and its law-enforcement division; Command Officers Association of Michigan; Michigan Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council Corrections Sergeants Division; Michigan Council No. 25 AFSCME AFL-CIO for general unit, circuit court, friend of the court, family court and probate court, and district court.
