Probation workers’ strike ends

GENEVA – Monday evening marked the end of a labor dispute which waged all spring, seeing Kane County probation officers and youth counselors on strike since April 30.

Kane County Chief Judge Susan Clancy Boles released a statement Monday evening saying she was pleased ““that the valued employees who do important work for the judicial system and the community are returning to work.”

While terms of the contract had not been released by Boles, the employees, represented by Teamsters Local 330, had sought yearly 3.7 percent step increases, among other contract changes, which previously had been rejected by the Chief Judge’s office.
