SPRINGFIELD — Over 30 Illinois conservation officers will be keeping their jobs.
Governor Bruce Rauner announced today the administration has reached a collective bargaining agreement with the labor council representing the conservation police officers.
A spokesperson for Rauner says the new contract is “fair to both state employees and taxpayers.”
The agreement includes a four-year wage freeze and ensures no conservation police officers will be laid off. The state is also looking to add more conservation officers to the staff.
