Breaking: New four-year-contract for the Stratford Police Service

Uniform and civilian members of the Stratford Police Service have a new four-year contract.

A press release was sent out Monday afternoon stating that the Stratford Police Services Board and the Stratford Police Association have reached a new four-year collective bargaining agreement.

The agreement is effective from January 1st, 2019 to  December 31st, 2022 and includes an average annual wage increase for uniform members of just under 2%.

The release says that additional wage increases for civilian members bring them in line with the comparative median wage of others doing similar work in Ontario police services.
