Negotiations continue between Woodbury Co. and law enforcement
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Contract negotiations continue between Woodbury County officials and its deputies and jailers.
Last week, jailers presented their request for a 6% raise for 2010 and 2011, and changes to longevity pay. Tuesday, the county responded with a counter-offer. The county didn't offer any salary increase for jailers and, even raised their insurance co-pay from $15- to $20,000. They will go into closed negotiations at the end of this month.
Closed negotiations for deputies started today. Sheriff's officials say the deputies are asking for a 3- to 6% raise and schedules made much further in advance.
