The City of Evanston is pleased to announce that it has secured a memorandum of understanding with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Sergeants employee union regarding the city’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.
The memorandum follows earlier agreements with the FOP union representing patrol officers, the International Association of Fire Fighters and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, and represents the final agreement related to the vaccination policy between the city and unions representing city employees.
“Our entire city staff team has served and supported our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, providing critical services and keeping our community safe,” Mayor Daniel Biss said in a news release. “I’m grateful to the FOP Sergeants union and all city employee unions for approaching these discussions with the same dedication, professionalism and commitment to public safety reflected in their daily work.”
“I greatly appreciate all of our employee unions for coming to the table to discuss this issue and ultimately taking action to make our community healthier and safer,” said Interim City Manager Kelley Gandurski in the news release. “Thank you also to the city’s Health and Human Services Department, Law Department and Human Resources Division for facilitating these important agreements.”
