Cook County has recently ratified new three-year agreements with each of its employee bargaining units: the LELS (Law Enforcement), 49ers (Highway Department) and CCEA (Cook County Employee Association), and is moving to implement to results of the completed Keystone Class/Comp Study over the coming weeks. The basic elements of the new three-year contracts are now the same across each of the three groups and are also applicable to the non-represented County employees including department heads, supervisors and confidential employees.
As part of the changes, approximately $356,260 of the County's health care costs will shift on to employees who are now covering a 20% share.
