After 2-year freeze, Oak Park’s non-union employees get raises

For the first time since the Great Recession hit in 2008, a handful of employees at Oak Park Village Hall are getting raises. Since Jan. 1, 2008, about 85 workers who aren’t in labor unions — including the chief financial officer, police chief and village planner — have had their pay frozen. But this year village hall decided to loosen its belt a little, giving those employees a 2-percent pay boost.
