A union representing nearly 1,500 Baltimore County public employees has reached an agreement with the county to extend its contract through 2016. Members of the Baltimore County Federation of Public Employees ratified the extension by a vote of 98 percent, the union said Wednesday. The group — which previously had a labor agreement with the county through 2015 — represents workers including correctional officers and emergency dispatchers. Under their contract, the employees are scheduled to get a 3 percent bonus in November 2014 and a 3 percent cost-of-living increase in July 2015.

Baltimore school administrators have ratified a new contract that union officials said would make city principals among the highest paid in the state and promote leaders through a new career and compensation ladder based on performance. The Public School Administrators and Supervisors Association ratified its contract after 150 members voted Friday to approve the deal, which includes a 2 percent retroactive pay raise and $1,800 stipend. The pact eliminates annual step increases — raises based on seniority and academic degrees — and implements a new career ladder.

It also provides 3 percent bonus in November and a 3 percent cost-of-living increase in July 2015.

The Ravens are trying to reach closure on left tackle Jonathan Ogden's contract extension, as both sides will continue to talk over this weekend. Marvin Demoff, Ogden's agent, and Pat Moriarty, the team's chief negotiator, have exchanged several proposals, and the team reported yesterday that progress has been made. But the Ravens wouldn't commit to having a deal reached in the next few days. One Internet report speculated that the extension could be worth close to $28 million over four years and include a signing bonus in the $12 million range.

Baltimore officials plan Wednesday to extend the contract of two firms that provide many of the city's information technology workers, saying they need more time before allowing other companies to compete for the work. Under the terms of a $2.4 million deal, Digicon Corp. will continue to provide the Mayor's Office of Information Technology with staffers for an additional six months. The administration also is moving to extend the contract of another IT staffing firm, Telecommunication Systems Inc., for $2.7 million over six months.

The Orioles today announced they have re-signed free agent left-handed pitcher Mark Hendrickson to a one-year contract for the 2010 season with a club option for the 2011 season. Details of the contract were worked out last week pending a physical. Earlier today the team announced it had agreed on a deal with 32-year old left-hander Will Ohman. Hendrickson, 35, went 6-5 with a 4.37 ERA in 53 games, including 11 starts, for the Orioles in 2009. In 42 relief appearances, Hendrickson was 4-0 with a 3.44 ERA. Hendrickson is the only major league pitcher to make at least 10 starts and five relief appearances in each of the last four seasons.

The theory that players suffer a drop in production after signing big contracts apparently doesn't apply to Sam Koch. Through six games, the Ravens punter is enjoying career highs in both punting average (47.3 yards) and net average (41.4) after agreeing in February to a five-year deal believed to be in the range of almost $12 million. Koch has plenty of reasons to perform well, and one of those is the absence of guaranteed contracts in the NFL. “It is a little bit of security, but then again, that contract really doesn't mean much because if you don't go out there and perform week in and week out, that contract could be voided within a day,” Koch said Thursday.
