Charles County Sheriff, Correctional Officers Assoc President Sign 1st Collective Bargaining Contract


Charles County Sheriff Frederick E. Davis and CFC John Greer, president of the Charles County Correctional Officers Association, met May 9 and signed the first collective bargaining contract since a bill passed in 2002 allowing the Sheriff’s Office and the Correctional Officers Association members to formally negotiate working conditions and other contract terms.

"I am pleased the collective bargaining process has successfully produced a fair contract which recognizes the outstanding and dedicated efforts of Charles County’s correctional officers," said Sheriff Davis. "I am extremely appreciative of the cooperative effort to make this contract a success."

"The Charles County Correctional Officers Association approached their first negotiations with the Sheriff’s Office with optimism and enthusiasm, and were pleased with the outcome. At all times the negotiations remained professional and productive, and at the end produced benefits that the Association’s negotiating committee and Sheriff’s representatives thought to be fair and in the best interest of both parties," said CFC Greer. "The Association appreciates the continued support of the Sheriff and his recognition of the outstanding job the men and women of his Agency perform at the county detention center."

The contract will be renewed in 2008.
