HB 220 Could Expand Fire Bargaining Units

This week, the Illinois Senate passed HB 220, which has now been sent to the Governor for signature. If he signs the bill, it would amend provisions of state law that define who is a supervisor or a company officer for purposes of determining who can be included in a bargaining unit for a fire department. Specifically, the bill proposes to define a company officer to include an officer who "may be responsible for multiple companies or apparatus on a shift, multiple stations, or an entire shift..." Fire unions have argued this could expand which fire officers are included in bargaining units.
