Excerpts from the Journal-Topics.com:

A one-year contact between the Village of Buffalo Grove and the Buffalo Grove Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Local 3177 was approved by trustees giving 52 members a 2.5%-3% increase in base salaries from May 1 through April 30, 2020. The agreement provides a 3% increase for firefighter/paramedics and a 2.5% increase for fire lieutenants.

As part of the agreement, starting May 1 firefighter/paramedics will earn between $64,829.44 and $105,691.04, depending on years of service. Lieutenants that are paramedics will earn between $111,096.96 and $123,980.48; lieutenants that are not paramedics will earn between $108,902.56 and $121,530.24.

According to village officials, the deal is identical to the agreement reached between the parties last year.
