In accordance with the terms set out in the collective agreement, dated May 1, 2020 to April 30, 2023, between the village and the Buffalo Grove Professional Firefighter / Paramedic Association, the two parties met and came to an agreement on a covering letter. .
As part of the deal, firefighters will receive a 2.53% raise over the next year, while lieutenants will earn a 2.52% raise during that same period.
Both parties agree that all terms of the agreement from May 1, 2020 to April 30, 2023 will remain open and will be extended until October 31, 2021.
