Baltimore County sheriff's deputies are the latest group of employees to reach a three-year labor agreement with the county.
County officials said Wednesday that members of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 25 approved a contract similar to those other unions in the county have approved in recent weeks. The deal guarantees no furloughs or layoffs through 2016, and provides a 3 percent bonus in 2014, as well as a 3 percent cost-of-living allowance in 2015. The union represents 75 employees.
The county also has recently reached agreements with unions representing employees including firefighters, paramedics and public health nurses, as well as members of AFSCME Local 921.
