Jackson County Board approves new contract

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- The Jackson County Board unanimously approved a new contract with about 40 employees who work in the clerk's office and the sheriff's maintenance staff.  

Tonight's vote ends a contentious last few weeks between the board and the union— including a vote to strike a few weeks ago.  

After that vote to strike, board members voted to go back to the bargaining table, and negotiating teams reached a deal.  

The deal lasts for four years and includes a three-percent pay-bump.
