Door County Emergency Medical Service personnel have ratified a new contract with the county. Members of IAFF Local 4982 met Friday evening and voted overwhelmingly to accept the deal. The Door County Board of Supervisors approved the pact when it met August 27th. Local 4982 President Brandon Schopf says ratification by the membership took a bit longer while some contract language was clarified. Schopf says there were questions about holiday pay for those who are scheduled to work a holiday and those who are off duty.
The new contract takes effect retroactively to January 1st, 2019.
