LOCAL 117 BARGAINING COMMITTEE REACHES AGREEMENT WITH DOC ON UNIFORMS
Updated On: Dec 18, 2012

After several months of negotiating, your Local Union’s bargaining committee has reached an agreement with the Department of Corrections on uniforms in accordance with the new law (HB2346). 

The Department will furnish professional quality and gender appropriate uniforms for custody staff as follows:

A.      Four BDU style pants;

B.      Four BDU style shirts – any combination of long or short sleeve shirts the employee elects; and as necessary,

C.      Safety, cold and/or foul weather apparel, including jackets and hats.

The DOC will provide Flying Cross dark blue short-sleeve shirts (model #85R5456) and/or Flying Cross dark blue long-sleeve shirts (model #35R5456) and Flying Cross dark blue pants (model #47300); and Blauer dark blue jackets (2012 Tacshell 4 in 1 jacket model #9820-60).   

There is a rollout scheduled to start next February.   Details about the rollout will be forthcoming from the Department soon. 

Finally, after years of ill-fitting, low-quality uniforms, you will have the professional uniforms that you deserve!  Thank you for your patience during the negotiations process.
