Lancaster County Corrections Labor Agreement Approved | KLIN

The Lancaster County Board of Commissioners has approved a 3-year labor agreement with the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge No. 32, which represents correctional officers employed by the Lancaster County Department of Corrections.

Under the agreement, incoming correctional officers will receive a starting salary of $27.00 per hour with the opportunity to earn up to $32.26 per hour. This competitive compensation plan guarantees annual increases of 3% for all correctional officers in August 2022 and August 2023.

Deb Schorr, Chair of the Lancaster County Board of Commissioners, said, “I want to thank the Lancaster County Negotiating Team and FOP#32 for working tirelessly to reach this agreement. This agreement will help recruit new correctional officers, reward our existing correctional officers for their dedicated service, and reinforce the Corrections Service’s mission to keep the community safe through safe, lawful and compassionate adult detention. We greatly appreciate the hard work of all of our correctional staff.

“I am delighted that Lancaster County and FOP #32 have worked on an agreement that includes a very competitive compensation plan for our correctional officers,” said Brad Johnson, director of the Lancaster County Department of Corrections. “I’m proud to work with Nebraska’s top correctional officers and it’s only fitting that the new compensation plan puts them ahead of all their peers in counties across the state. I hope that this agreement will allow us to attract qualified candidates who wish to find their career path in a modern institution at the cutting edge of technology. I want to express my gratitude to the union leadership and bargaining team for their hard work throughout this process.
